Singler shot 6-of-8 on 3-pointers and Monroe finished with 12 points and 13 rebounds as the Pistons won for the ninth time in 11 games and improved to 6-15 at home.
Many called Drummond gifted, but not motivated; that he lacked a “motor.” Fitting enough, Drummond seems to be finding his motor in the Motor City.
Jennings took the inbounds pass and held for the last second shot. He drove to the bucket and missed the layup, but Drummond was there for the tip-in with 0.3 seconds to go.
Brandon Jennings had 34 points and 10 assists, and the Detroit Pistons won for the ninth time in 10 games, beating the Toronto Raptors.
Detroit, which has won eight of nine since releasing Josh Smith, also got 16 points and 17 rebounds from Greg Monroe and 14 points and nine boards from Andre Drummond.
The Pistons beat the Spurs on an amazing last-second running shot by Brandon Jennings, but a profane catchphrase keyed by Van Gundy will remain the lasting image.
As explained by the Pistons’ Stan Van Gundy on Wednesday, the Jazz could only tip the ball — not catch and shoot — per NBA rules with less than 0.3 seconds on the clock. No problem for Booker.
After trailing by 23 in the second quarter, Detroit rallied and had a chance to tie when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
The Pistons only fell behind twice in the game, both times by two points in the first quarter. Trailing 15-13, Jennings hit a layup with 3:38 left to spark a 9-0 run and the Pistons never trailed again.
Greg Monroe had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Andre Drummond scored 20 points and the Pistons ended a four-game skid with a 119-109 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
