Pistons roll in home finale, 116-77 over Hornets

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Andre Drummond had 15 points and 19 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons turned their home finale into a rout, 116-77 over the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

Greg Monroe scored 17 points in what might have been his final home game at the Palace. Monroe is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Noah Vonleh led Charlotte with 16 points.

Drummond was dominant early, helping Detroit to a 30-10 lead after the first quarter, and the Pistons stretched it in the second. A jumper by John Lucas III made it 53-19 with 4:28 left in the half.

At that point, the Hornets were 5 of 30 from the field.

Jodie Meeks led the Pistons with 24 points, and Anthony Tolliver added 17. Reggie Jackson had 13 assists.
