Billups win the duel against James (and Pistons beat Cavs)

It was not a good game for LeBron, since Chauncey Billups scored 18 points, Chris Webber and Wallace had 15 apiece to help the Pistons beat the Cavaliers 90-78 on Sunday.

Making a really good performance, Billups added 10 assists, Wallace 13 rebounds and the division-leading Pistons won their fifth straight regular-season game over the Cavaliers, who pushed them to seven matches in last year's playoffs.

We must mention that with their third triumph in a row, the Pistons improved to 15-9 outside Michigan's state lines and are the only team in the Eastern Conference with a winning road record.

"We expect this victory" a "humble" Billups expressed. Indeed, Detroit Pistons controlled the tempo from the outset and never allowed a crowd of more than 20,000 fans to begin the Super Bowl partying. The Pistons kept it quiet by limiting LeBron James' dunks, and any time Cleveland had a defensive breakdown, the Pistons hit an open jumper.

However, LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 21 points, but the All-Star forward was only 9-of-22 from the field and had a few tough layups roll out. It was not enough this time.
