Pistons rout short-handed 76ers 113-96
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Andre Drummond had 22 points and 14 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons' talented frontcourt overwhelmed the short-handed Philadelphia 76ers for a 113-96 victory Saturday night.
Greg Monroe added 21 points and 12 rebounds. He and Drummond combined to go 18 of 21 from the field. Brandon Jennings and Kyle Singler added 20 points apiece for Detroit.
Philadelphia was without rookie of the year candidate Michael Carter-Williams, who sat out with a sore right shoulder. Tony Wroten led the 76ers with 18 points.
Detroit owner Tom Gores was seated courtside. The Pistons have won back-to-back games at The Palace for the first time since their first two home games of the season. Detroit is 9-15 at home.
