Morris, Drummond help Pistons beat Mavericks 102-96
DALLAS (AP) — Marcus Morris scored 20 points, including two 3-pointers during a decisive fourth-quarter run, and Andre Drummond had 25 points and 17 rebounds to help the Detroit Pistons beat the Dallas Mavericks 102-96 Wednesday night.
Drummond leads the NBA with 54 double-doubles. Tobias Harris added 19 points for Detroit.
Chandler Parsons and Dirk Nowitzki each scored 25 points for Dallas, which lost its season-high fourth in a row.
Following a tight first three quarters, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope stole an outlet pass and drove for a layup to give the Pistons an 82-81 lead. That started a 12-2 run that included Morris’ two 3s, the last to go up 92-83 with 5:21 to go. That was the largest lead either team held in the game.
