Pistons Cruise To 4th Straight Win, 118-102 Over Magic

By NOAH TRISTER/AP Sports Writer

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Andre Drummond had 30 points and 14 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons never trailed in their 118-102 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

The Pistons, who are chasing their first postseason appearance since 2009, have won four straight, and they still have four games to go on their nine-game homestand. They've had their problems defensively of late, but they were so good on offense against the Magic that it almost didn't matter what happened at the other end.
Detroit shot 54 percent from the field and 11 of 24 from 3-point range.

Tobias Harris scored 18 points for the Pistons against his former team, and Reggie Jackson added 16 points and nine assists.

Elfrid Payton had 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Magic, who have lost five straight.
