PHILADELPHIA – Andre Drummond had 18 points and 16 rebounds and Marcus Morris scored 21 points to help the Detroit Pistons beat the Philadelphia 76ers 107-95 on Friday night.

The Pistons opened the game on an 11-0 run, built a 24-point lead in the first half and led 89-66 after three quarters.

It was a typical game for the abysmal Sixers. San Antonio beat Philadelphia by 51 points on Monday.

Yet, coach Brett Brown believes better days are ahead and signed a multi-year contract extension that was announced before the game.

Brown dropped to 38-150 in 2 1/2 seasons with the Sixers. They are 1-23 this season.

Reggie Jackson also scored 21 points for the Pistons.
