Hornets control second half in 118-107 win over Pistons

DETROIT (AP) Stephen Silas wrapped up his stint as Charlotte's acting head coach with a win.

Kemba Walker scored 17 of his 20 points in the second half, and the Hornets pulled away in the fourth quarter of a 118-107 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Monday. Silas, Charlotte's associate head coach, has been filling in for Steve Clifford, who has been out for more than a month for health reasons. Clifford will take over again Wednesday against Washington, and Silas was grateful to his players for their effort while he was in charge.

"I just told them how much I appreciated them and how they made it easy for me to coach them," Silas said. "They had a decision to make. They could have either treated me as a substitute coach or treated me as someone who could really help them, and they did the latter."
