Jennings carries Pistons past Celtics 107-106

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) -- Brandon Jennings scored 28 points, making a key 3-pointer with 46.7 seconds left, and matched his season high with 14 assists Wednesday night and the Detroit Pistons held on for a 107-106 win over the Boston Celtics.

Andre Drummond scored 14 points with 16 rebounds and Josh Smith added 20 points for the Pistons, who won for the seventh time in 11 games. It was the Pistons' sixth road win in their past seven.

Jared Sullinger scored 19 points, Jordan Crawford had 17, Avery Bradley 14 and Jeff Green 13 for Boston, which lost for just the third time in nine games.

Green missed a driving one-hander wildly just before the horn sounded.

The Pistons held a seven-point lead after Smith's basket with 2:56 to play before Boston scored the next eight points, with Sullinger's 3-pointer from the top capping the spree with 61 seconds left.
