AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Jason Maxiell scored 20 points and Carlos Delfino added 13 points and 12 rebounds as the Detroit Pistons defeated the Washington Wizards 101-94 Tuesday in a preseason game.

The game was moved up by 30 minutes to avoid overlapping with the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the World Series, but it still was played in front of a tiny crowd at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Neither team was at full strength, but the Wizards were closer than Detroit, which gave Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace the night off. Washington's Antawn Jamison started the game, but played only 6 minutes before leaving with a sore shoulder that was not considered serious.

The Wizards led 48-44 at the half, but Detroit took control in the third, outscoring the Wizards' reserves 28-16 to take a 72-64 lead.

Detroit cruised in the fourth, posting a comfortable victory even though Tayshaun Prince had joined his celebrated running mates on the bench after playing only 21 minutes.

Flip Murray added 14 points, and Prince and Lindsey Hunter had 10 each, for Detroit.

Roger Mason led the Wizards with 22, while Caron Butler added 16. Gilbert Arenas scored nine in the first period, and finished with 12 in 14 minutes.
