AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) – Reggie Jackson scored 24 of his 34 points after halftime, and the Detroit Pistons rallied from 16 down in the fourth quarter to beat the Phoenix Suns 127-122 in overtime Wednesday night.

Andre Drummond, the worst free throw shooter in NBA history, hit a pair from the line with 14.3 seconds left to tie the game at 112, and Eric Bledsoe missed an off-balance jumper at the buzzer.

The Pistons started overtime with an 8-1 run, but a pair of missed free throws by Drummond helped Phoenix narrow the gap to 122-120 with 1:27 seconds to play.

The Suns had two chances to tie it in the last 35 seconds, but P.J. Tucker was called for an offensive foul and T.J. Warren missed a contested layup. Marcus Morris made one of two free throws with 9.1 seconds left to make it 125-122, and Brandon Knight missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it.
