The Detroit Pistons bounced back from Sunday’s lackluster loss to the 76ers, and defeated the Dallas Mavericks 95-85 last evening. For much of the game, it appeared that the Pistons were still stuck in the mud. They trailed by a dozen late in the third quarter, but a strong closing run and some great bench play brought them the victory. For the first time this season, Reggie Jackson led the team in scoring, with 20 points. Andre Drummond grabbed 17 rebounds. The Pistons visit the Washington Wizards tomorrow night. Hear the broadcast on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.
