Detroit Pistons lose exhibition to Brooklyn Nets in overtime
DETROIT — Reggie Bullock missed his first eight shots for Detroit, but got a layup — off an assist by Andre Drummond — to fall in the final seconds and force overtime.
Drummond tried to send the game to potentially a second overtime, but missed from the left side of the lane with about 3 seconds left in overtime and lobbied unsuccessfully for a foul call as the Brooklyn Nets prevailed 110-108 in an NBA preseason game on Monday.
Brooklyn’s Allen Crabbe left less than 3 minutes into the game with a sprained left ankle. X-rays were negative.
The Pistons’ Langston Galloway scored 24 points and Blake Griffin finished with 17, on a night in which Drummond had a 14-point, 10-rebound double-double — but missed 15 of his 21 shots.
For the Nets, D’Angelo Russell led the way with 25 points. Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen each scored 17.
