AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- LeBron James rolled his eyes, slumped his shoulders and looked toward his coaches and teammates.
It was another frustrating night for him and the Cleveland Cavaliers. James and the Cavs tried to attack the Detroit Pistons differently, but came away with the same result.
Rasheed Wallace scored 10 of his 16 points in the final quarter and made a go-ahead, fadeaway jumper over James on the baseline with 24 seconds left, lifting Detroit to a 79-76 victory and a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.
James, who passed up a shot in the final seconds of the series opener, took and missed a spinning shot in the lane with Richard Hamilton draped on him on the ensuing possession.
Larry Hughes grabbed the offensive rebound and missed a shot. After Wallace grabbed the rebound, Cavs coach Mike Brown was called for a technical foul after arguing that James was fouled on his shot attempt.
Game 3 is Sunday night in Cleveland.
