CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

OMAHA, Neb. -- Backup point guard Lindsey Hunter sparked an 11-0 run midway through the fourth quarter to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 101-96 preseason victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.

The 13-year veteran broke an 82-82 tie with a 3-pointer with 6:30 remaining, then added a layup, steal and assist during the run.

The steal occurred on the possession following his tie-breaking shot and led to a score by Ronald Murray.

Hunter, who scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, added a driving layup of his own, then assisted on Antonio McDyess' basket as Detroit's lead grew to 93-82.

Before the Pistons' decisive run, neither team led by more than seven points.

Troy Hudson had 15 points for the Timberwolves, who committed 23 turnovers, nine in the third quarter when they managed just 14 points.

Jason Maxiell scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter for Detroit.

Murray had 14 points and Rasheed Wallace and Richard Hamilton each added 12 for the Pistons.

Kevin Garnett and Bracey Wright each scored 12 points for Minnesota, while Eddie Griffin and Craig Smith both added 10.
