Page 14 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 23, 1988 Sports Pistons Pound Pacers PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) Chuck Daly finds himself looking at the same scenario he faced this time last season. But the Pistons coach is hoping for different results this time around. After stopping Indiana 128-104 Tuesday night, the Pistons record stood at 45-20. This marks the first time in team history that Detroit is 25 games over .500. After starting out 44-20 last year, the Pistons lost 10 of their final 18 games to finish behind Atlanta in the Central Division. Detroit must p!ay 10 of its remaining 17 contests on the road and Daly is hoping to avoid a repeat performance. "I read about (the records) and I know about them," Daly said. "But we just want, to keep winning to stay in control of our own destiny in the division and in the conference." Detroit's performance Tuesday gave Daly several reasons to be optimistic about his team's chances of remaining atop the division. Adrian Dantley scored 26 points — his highest output since returning from his ankle injury on Feb. 26. "I think my ankle is about 80 percent," said Dantley, who has been coming off the bench for the Pistons. "It bothers me on my first step and coming around picks on defense." The Pistons leader Isiah Thomas took control of the game — scoring nine consecutive points during a 14-0 Detroit run Lakers' Magic Act Stuns Rockets Associated Press Ron Anderson (R), Adrian Dantley chase loose ball that gave the Pistons a 91-80 lead with five seconds to go in the third quarter. The Pistons earned their 18th consecutive home victory. Although a 3-point basket by Scott Skiles at the end of the third quarter brought the Pacers within 91-83, Detroit pulled away early in the fourth quarter and led by as many as 21 points. "We've got other people who can do it occasionally, but he's the guy who's done it most often," Daly said. "It comes out of the blue sometimes. He's kind of coasting along, and then he decides we need it. He goes into another mode."

After losing four of six games, five of them with Magic Johnson out of the lineup with a groin injury, the Lakers were trailing Houston by seven points when Johnson entered Tuesday night's game midway through the first quarter. He immediately pumped some needed life into an offense that had committed at least 20 turnovers in each of its previous three games. Johnson played only 24 minutes and had 10 points and 12 assists, but there was no doubt he was the catalyst for a 117-95 victory over the Rockets. Houston, which clinched its fourth consecutive playoff berth when Phoenix lost to Utah, was led by Joe Barry Carroll with 16 points.
