|RASHARD LEWIS Scores 20 points|
A blowout at the Palace of Auburn Hills is nothing new.
The surprise last night was that it was the Pistons getting routed. Detroit trailed the Orlando Magic by as many as 26 points and its 10-game winning streak was snapped with a 103-85 loss.
"I certainly didn't foresee that happening," Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. "A lot has to go right for us to beat the Pistons like that, especially on a night when Dwight Howard scores 8 points and Hedo Turkoglu goes 4 for 13."
Detroit extended its win streak to double digits with a lopsided victory over Indiana Feb. 13, but knew it would be tough to keep its intensity through the All-Star break.
"You hate having a break when you are on a winning streak, because it messes with your momentum," said Chauncey Billups. "That's not an excuse, because we feel like we should have played better than that."
Rashard Lewis scored 20 points for the Magic, reserve Keith Bogans added 19, and former Piston Maurice Evans had 16.
Lakers 122, Hawks 93 - Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol each scored 23 points before sitting out the fourth quarter as host Los Angeles claimed its fifth straight victory.
It was Gasol's first home game with Los Angeles, since his trade from Memphis.
It was also Bryant's first game since deciding to forgo surgery on his injured shooting hand, and Mike Bibby's debut with Atlanta following a trade from Sacramento.
Rockets 93, Cavaliers 85 - Rafer Alston scored 22 points, Yao Ming added 16 points and 14 rebounds, and Houston tied a team record with its ninth straight road win.
The Cavaliers' LeBron James, who won his second All-Star MVP in three years Sunday in New Orleans, finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists. It was his fifth triple-double this season and career No. 15.
The Rockets won their ninth in a row to improve to 18-3 since Jan. 4. Houston last reeled off nine victories in a row on the road in 1993.
Spurs 85, Bobcats 65 - Manu Ginobili scored 18 points to lead San Antonio over Charlotte in the defending NBA champions' first home game in more than three weeks.
The Spurs went 6-3 on a nine-game trip, an annual event that happens when the rodeo rolls into town.
Knicks 113, Wizards 100 - Zach Randolph had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Jamal Crawford added 21 points, and visiting New York broke a franchise record by scoring 23 points in overtime.
Kings 105, Trail Blazers 94 - Ron Artest scored 24 points, Francisco Garcia added 23, and visiting Sacramento snapped a three-game losing streak.
Timberwolves 104, 76ers 88 - Reserve Rashad McCants scored 20 points, Al Jefferson had 19 points and 14 rebounds, and host Minnesota snapped a five-game losing streak.
Jazz 119, Warriors 109 - Deron Williams had 29 points and 12 assists for host Utah.
SuperSonics 108, Grizzlies 101 - Minus Kevin Durant (flu-like symptoms), Earl Watson scored a season-high 26 points and Wally Szczerbiak had 24, including the go-ahead score with 31 seconds remaining, to rally host Seattle.
