Josh Smith scored 23 points for the Pistons, who lost star center Andre Drummond in the first quarter to a neck injury.
Drummond left Saturday's game against the Pacers with an apparent head injury.
The Scoop:Drummond fell to the ground after what looked like inadvertent contact with Roy Hibbert of the Pacers during a scramble near the basket. Drummond stayed down through an entire timeout, and a stretcher was eventually brought onto the court. But he was able to get up and walk off toward the tunnel with some assistance.
