Pistons take down Nets



Jerami Grant equaled a career high with 32 points and the Detroit Pistons took advantage of Kevin Durant’s absence, beating the Brooklyn Nets 122-111 Tuesday.

Detroit snapped a fourgame losing streak and showed the same type of spirit that was on display in its previous game, a doubleover­time loss in Los Angeles against the defending champion Lakers. The last-place Pistons handed Brooklyn its third straight defeat.

Durant was out because of the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The Nets were without both him and Kyrie Irving (right finger sprain) in a loss to Philadelph­ia on Saturday night. Irving returned against Detroit and scored 27 points.
