AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Andre Drummond had 15 points and 18 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons took advantage of Kyle Lowry's absence to beat the Toronto Raptors 114-101 on Sunday night. Lowry sat out for the first time all season because the Raptors wanted to rest him after a 43-point performance against Cleveland on Friday. Detroit (31-29) won its fourth straight game and moved into a virtual tie with Charlotte (30-28) and Chicago (30-28) for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Raptors had their four-game winning streak snapped. The score was actually tied at 52 at halftime before the Pistons broke it open with a 37-point third quarter. All five Detroit starters scored in double figures in the game. Terrence Ross scored 27 points for the Raptors.
