NBA scores: Pistons fall to Pacers, Bulls take division lead over weekend

USA TODAY Sports

The Pistons extended their losing streak as Chicago grabbed sole possession of first place.

The Detroit Pistons lost their fourth-straight game, 88-77, at home to the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night. Indiana's David West was too much for Detroit, as he dropped in 23 points on 11-of-16 shooting. Greg Monroe led the Pistons with 18 points and eight rebounds.

Elsewhere around the Central division, the Chicago Bulls downed the Brooklyn Nets, 83-82, on Saturday behind 19 points from Marco Bellini. That gave the Bulls first place at 13-9, as the Milwaukee Bucks fell big at home, 111-85, to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kyrie Irving poured in 41 points for the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers, but it wasn't enough. The Knicks beat the Cavs, 103-102, after Cleveland's Anderson Varejao missed a potential game-tying free throw at the end of regulation. The Cavs are now 5-20 and last in the Central division.
