SACRAMENTO, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Andre Drummond
collected a massive 18 rebounds Friday, helping bring Detroit a 97-90 win over Sacramento that ended the Pistons' four-game losing streak.
The last two losses in that skid had come at the start of a four-game road trip that will conclude Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Detroit took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter and the Pistons easily held on thanks to Drummond's work on the boards and his 15 points. Josh Smith scored 21 points and Rodney Stuckey had 15.
The Kings had been trying for their first two-game winning streak of the season. They were led by DeMarcus Cousins with 26 points and 13 rebounds.
