NBA tidbits

December 21, 1997

Pacers: Indiana's Chris Mullin, the league leader in free-throw accuracy, extended his streak of successful attempts to 32 by making his only shot from the line during Friday night's 98-90 victory over Detroit.

Lakers: Kobe Bryant's four-game stretch of scoring nearly a point a minute ended when he needed 31 minutes to score 19 points during the Lakers' 98-96 win over Atlanta. He had scored 109 points in 110 minutes in his previous four games.

Knicks: The Knicks snapped a six-game road losing streak, their longest in a decade, and handed Cleveland a 104-77 loss.

Pistons: Jerry Stackhouse, acquired Thursday by the Pistons, came off the bench to score 19 in the fourth quarter, and ended up with a season-high 33, nearly bringing Detroit back from a 19-point deficit before the Pacers hung on for a 98-90 victory.
