AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Detroit fans rose to their feet for a former favorite, then had a reason to cheer the current Pistons, too.

Chauncey Billups scored a season-high 34 points in his return to The Palace, but the Pistons came away with the 100-95 victory Tuesday night against the Carmelo Anthony-less Denver Nuggets.

Tayshaun Prince scored 23 points for the Pistons and four of his teammates scored at least 16.

The Pistons have won three straight for the first time in two months - after losing seven straight - to move a game over .500 in a season that was stunted by a trade that sent Billups to Denver for Allen Iverson.

Iverson missed his third straight game with a back injury.
