He scored 12 of the Pistons last 15 points after being 0 for 8 through three quarters. 6 of his 12 points came from 2 3-pointers. He scored 10 in a row in the fourth quarter and finished with 16 points and 8 assists.

Rodney Stuckey did an excellent job against the Hawks, making it possible for Chauncey to rest for 18 minutes and therefore have enough energy to be "Mr. Big Shot" in the fourth quarter. Rodney finished with 12 points and 2 assists in 18 minutes.

Rasheed Wallace was on fire early against the Hawks scoring 15 points in the first quarter. 9 of his 15 first quarter points came from three 3-pointers. Rasheed finished with 21 points.
