AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Andre Drummond’s tip-in with 2 seconds remaining lifted the Detroit Pistons to a 92-91 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.
The Pistons, who are in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, came out inexplicably flat and trailed by 17 points in the first half. They were down 13 in the third quarter before chipping away at Milwaukee’s lead in the fourth.
Drummond was outplayed badly early on by Greg Monroe, but when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed from the perimeter in the final seconds, Drummond was able to tip the ball in. The Bucks weren’t able to get a clean shot off after that.
Drummond finished with 14 points and 16 rebounds.
Khris Middleton led Milwaukee with 27 points, and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 21.
