firmly locked in second place in the Central Division, seven games behind the
idle Indiana Pacers.

dunk to cap it off with 8:05 remaining in the first quarter.

Detroit, which opened a six-game homestand last night, has won five straight

The Pistons will return to action on Wednesday when they host the Los Angeles
