Bulls Win 5th Straight Over Detroit, 98-80

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan -- The Chicago Bulls tied the club record set last season with a 5-0 start, knocking the Detroit Pistons from the ranks of the undefeated with a 98-80 victory.


Luc Longley scored all 16 of his points as the Bulls took command in the first quarter. Michael Jordan, who took only one shot in the first quarter, kicked in with nine of his 15 points during the second quarter.


Detroit's 4-0 start was its best since 1988 when the Pistons won their first eight games and went on to win the first of two NBA championships.


76ers 115, Celtics 105. In Boston, Allen Iverson scored 32 points, leading Philadelphia in scoring for the third time in his four pro games, as the 76ers got their first win of the season.


Iverson, the NBA's leading rookie scorer, had 30, 15 and 24 points in his other games. Against the Celtics, he scored 15 in the fourth quarter and repeatedly drew fouls with speedy drives to the basket.


Raptors 93, Lakers 92. In Toronto, Damon Stoudamire collected his second career triple-double, scoring 21 points with 10 assists and 10 rebounds to lead Toronto over Los Angeles.


Stoudamire pulled up and nailed a 3-point shot for a 93-83 lead with 1:53 to play before the Lakers, on three field goals by Shaquille O'Neill and a 3-point shot by Byron Scott with 24 seconds to play, cut the lead to 93-92.


Eddie Jones tried to inbound to O'Neal under the basket with 2.2 seconds left, but the ball was deflected to the baseline. O'Neal sent up a wild shot at the buzzer that missed badly.


Hornets 102, Bullets 87. In Landover, Maryland, Charlotte held Washington to 37 percent shooting, and Tony Smith scored 20 points off the bench in the Hornets' first road win under new coach Dave Cowens.


Anthony Goldwire had 18 points, Anthony Mason 17 and Matt Geiger 16 for the Hornets, but it was Charlotte's defense that made the difference. Washington scored only 19 points in the pivotal third quarter and made just 37 of 99 field-goal attempts for the game.


Chris Webber had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Bullets, but he was 9-for-20 from the floor. Juwan Howard scored 14 points on 6-for-23 shooting and Tracy Murray was 2-for-11.

He made 14 of 22 free throws in the game, while the entire Boston team made only 16 of 23.








Scottie Pippen and Toni Kukoc joined Longley with 16 points for Chicago.
