AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Chandler Parsons scored a season-high 32 points and Monta Ellis added 25 as the Dallas Mavericks beat the Detroit Pistons 117-106 Wednesday night.
Parsons fell two points short of a career high as he helped the Mavericks win a second road game in two nights. Dirk Nowitzki contributed 18 points and 10 rebounds, including seven points to help stem a late Detroit rally.
Andre Drummond had 19 points and 24 rebounds, but couldn’t help the Pistons end an 11-game losing streak at home. Detroit’s last win at the Palace came on Nov. 7 against Milwaukee.
Drummond dominated the first half with 11 points and 13 rebounds, although he missed five of his six free-throw attempts. His teammates only shot 40.5 percent from the floor, but that was enough to keep Detroit within 53-51 at the half.
