Two games against the Timberwolves is all that separates the Pistons from concluding their schedule against Western Conference teams.

And after Saturday, those two games can't come soon enough considering the Trail Blazers were one of the four West teams that can say they've lost to the Pistons (23-45) this season, and the Blazers (31-34) squared up the season series with a 112-101 win at the Rose Garden Saturday night.

The loss is the eighth straight for the Pistons, who conclude their four-game road trip winless.

The Blazers couldn't stop Will Bynum on the pick and roll. With every basket in the fourth, he kept looking over to the Blazers' bench, sometimes with words, others with glares.

He scored eight straight to pull the Pistons within two in the period, with two three-point plays and a floater.

"The way he played the pick and roll, we were able to exploit it," acting coach Brian Hill said. "We wanted him in attack mode and he did that at every opportunity."
