Toronto (7-13) at Detroit (9-8) 7:30 pm EST

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Larry Brown is due to collect a pair of coaching milestones when the Detroit Pistons host the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Brown will coach in his 2,000th professional game, combining the NBA with the ABA, and will join Lenny Wilkins, Bill Fitch and Don Nelson in this select group. Brown will also coach his 100th game with the Pistons. Detroit defeated the Dallas Mavericks, 101-85, on Monday for its third win during a four-game road trip. Chauncey Billups scored 24 points and had eight assists, and the Pistons held the Mavericks to a season-low 39 points in the first half. Toronto, which has played the most road games ( 13) of any team this season and has lost 11, will wrap up a six-game road swing against Detroit. The Raptors lost their fourth straight game Monday, when falling to the New Jersey Nets, 88-86. Vince Carter scored 22 points but missed a layup at the buzzer that would have sent the game into overtime. Toronto defeated Detroit, 101-89, on November 5. Chris Bosh scored 18 points and Loren Woods recorded his first double-double with 17 points and 14 rebounds. Detroit holds a 26-10 series record and has more wins over the Raptors than any other Toronto opponent.
