AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Shaquille O'Neal and Richard Hamilton were both out of the lineup for Boston's game at Detroit on Tuesday.

O'Neal didn't make the trip for the Celtics. He had missed two straight practices since bruising his right knee against New York on Friday.

Hamilton had a sore right foot, and Ben Gordon took his place in the starting lineup. He scored 14 points in the Pistons' 109-86 loss. Hamilton went only 2 of 10 from the field in Detroit's loss to Chicago on Saturday.

The Pistons are off to their first 0-4 start since November 1999.
