Pistons struggle against Philly, still pick up win

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Andre Drummond had 25 points and 18 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons rallied to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-97 on Wednesday night. Drummond, who came into the game having gone 1 for 14 from the line in the last two games, even hit seven of his 12 free throws. Reggie Jackson added 27 points, while rookie Stanley Johnson had 18 off the bench. Jeremi Grant scored 21 points for the Sixers, while Nerlens Noel had 20. The 76ers played without starters Jahlil Okafor and JaKarr Sampson, who both missed their second game in two nights with the flu. Without them, the Sixers didn't have the legs to keep up with Detroit down the stretch. A victory would have given Philadelphia its first two-game winning streak of the season.
