Andre Miller scored 20 points while Willie Green had a career playoff-high 17 to help the Philadelphia 76ers stun the Detroit Pistons 90-86 Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round series. The Eastern Conference's second-seeded team was expected beat the seventh-seeded Sixers by double digits and did lead by 15 midway through the third quarter. But Philadelphia refused to follow the script.

After the Sixers trailed 62-47, Green made two baskets to start a 10-0 run that sparked a comeback. Miller gave Philadelphia a lead midway through the fourth quarter for the first time since late in the first. Rasheed Wallace had 24 points, nine rebounds and matched a franchise playoff record with seven blocks. Detroit hosts Game 2 Wednesday. (Read more basketball stories.)
