NBA scores: Pistons get Friday night victory over Toronto

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

It's been a slow start to the season for the Detroit Pistons, but on Friday they secured their third victory of the season with a 91-90 win over Toronto. Greg Monroe led Detroit with 19 points.

While it's been a tough early start to the season, the Detroit Pistons were able to secure a Friday night victory at the Palace of Auburn Hills over the Toronto Raptors. The 91-90 win helped Detroit improve their record to 3-10 overall, with all three victories coming in their last five games.

In the win, Detroit got their usual strong contribution from third-year forward Greg Monroe, who finished the evening with 19 points. Guard Brandon Knight and forward Tayshaun Prince each added 16 points, and the Pistons also got strong play off the bench from Andre Drummond. The rookie from Connecticut finished with a double-double, tallying 13 points and 13 rebounds.

Even with the victory, Detroit still remains in the Central Division basement, trailing Cleveland, which is 3-9 overall, by half a game. Detroit is also behind Indiana (6-8), Chicago (5-6) and division leader Milwaukee, which is currently 6-4 overall.

The Pistons will look to continue their winning ways when they next take the court Sunday, when they travel to take on the New York Knicks.

Game-time is set for 12:00 p.m. CT.
