AUBURN HILLS — Andre Drummond had 13 points and 17 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons snapped a four-game losing streak with a 103-87 win over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night.

Drummond bounced back from a poor outing at Dallas over the weekend, and the Pistons led comfortably throughout the second half. Detroit has struggled to close out games at home this season, but this time the Pistons turned a double-digit lead into a rout.

Brandon Jennings had 20 points and eight assists for Detroit, and Josh Smith added 16 points. Victor Oladipo scored 19 points for the Magic.

Detroit finished with 17 offensive rebounds — 12 in the first half — and outscored Orlando in the paint 44-22.
