Chauncey Billups had 21 points and 10 assists to help Detroit beat Portland.

Billups hit two free throws with 9.3 seconds left and Zach Randolph missed a three-pointer as the Pistons survived a tough challenge from the rebuilding Trail Blazers.

The Pistons (6-0) are the only undefeated team in the NBA and are off to their best start since going 8-0 in 1988-89. Rasheed Wallace scored 13 points in his third trip to Portland since his contentious stint with the Blazers ended two years ago.
