NBA: Boston Celtics vs. Detroit Pistons

Greg Monroe had 17 points and 10 assists, and Rodney Stuckey added 16 points to lead surging Detroit Pistons over the Boston Celtics 96-81 on Sunday night. Detroit has now won seven of its last nine games, including two victories in five days over the Celtics, who were missing Kevin Garnett (personal reasons) and Brandon Bass (left knee). Paul Pierce led Boston with 18 points. The Pistons scored 40 points off 24 turnovers, while the Celtics got only 13 points off Detroit’s 15 giveaways. The Pistons also had a 29-6 edge in second-chance points. The Pistons led 55-42 at halftime, but they could have been ahead by 20. Detroit took 29 free throws in the first half — the Celtics had just 10 — but missed 12 of them.
