Jonas Jerebko scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half, and the Detroit Pistons routed the Charlotte Bobcats 113-93 on Friday night behind terrific outside shooting.
Detroit went 12 of 18 from 3-point range, with Brandon Knight making all three of his attempts. Knight scored 19 points. Kemba Walker scored 24 in the first half for the Bobcats but finished with only 28.
Will Bynum had 15 points and 10 assists for Detroit. Rookie Andre Drummond had 15 points and nine rebounds but appeared to hurt his right ankle late in the game.
Detroit has won three in a row for only the second time all season. The Pistons had a four-game winning streak snapped by Charlotte in January.
