AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Joe Johnson scored 28 of his 30 points after halftime, including a tying 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left in regulation, and the Atlanta Hawks stunned the Detroit Pistons 107-101 in overtime Friday night.

Atlanta forced overtime with a pair of late 3-pointers. Marvin Williams made one with 33.5 seconds left in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to three, then Johnson stole a pass inside and brought the ball up the court. Johnson looked like as if might have hurt himself, but he kept the ball and sank a tough 3-pointer over Rodney Stuckey to tie it.

The Hawks started the extra session with a 12-2 run, including 3-pointers by Williams and Josh Smith.

Greg Monroe scored 22 points for the Pistons and Brandon Knight added 20.
