AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Brook Lopez had 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets won at Detroit for the first time since 2006, holding off the Pistons 93-90 on Wednesday night.

Will Bynum’s tying 3-point attempt from the right corner was short in the final seconds.

Joe Johnson scored 16 points for Brooklyn, including two free throws with 8.8 seconds left that made it a three-point game.

Detroit led by 13 in the second quarter, but the Pistons were only ahead 46-40 at halftime, and they were held to 17 points in the fourth quarter. Greg Monroe led Detroit with 23 points.

The Nets had lost 10 in a row to the Pistons on the road.

Brooklyn improved to 18-1 when facing a team under .500.
