AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Tobias Harris led a balanced offense with 22 points and Andre Drummond had 18 rebounds as the Detroit Pistons beat the Philadelphia 76ers 111-91 Wednesday night.

Playing in front of a tiny crowd because of a snowstorm in metro Detroit, the Pistons led by 16 points in the first quarter and were never threatened while winning their second straight after a five-game losing streak.

Hollis Thompson scored 19 points to lead the 76ers, who lost their sixth straight. Jahlil Okafor had 13 points, but just two rebounds. No other Philadelphia starter had more than eight points.

The Pistons were short-handed, thanks to injuries to Anthony Tolliver (knee) and Stanley Johnson (shoulder), leaving them without an established reserve scorer.

However, Reggie Bullock came off the bench to score 16 points while playing with a mask to protect his broken nose.
