AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay scored 21 points apiece and the Toronto Raptors ended a five-game skid with a 99-82 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. The Raptors led 46-45 at the break and took control by outscoring Detroit 23-5 in the first eight minutes of the third period. Gay, who had just two points at halftime, scored 19 points during the third. Amir Johnson added 20 points and Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 13 rebounds. Jonas Jerebko scored 20 points to lead the Pistons, who also got 17 from rookie Andre Drummond in their eighth straight home loss. Drummond, who missed 22 games with a stress fracture in his lower back, made his first career start. NOTES: Pistons guard Brandon Knight left the game less than a minute in after a collision with Toronto's DeRozan left him with a bloody nose. He returned a few minutes later wearing a protective mask and limped off the floor after being fouled midway through the fourth quarter. . It was 90s Night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Actor Luke Perry of "Beverly Hills 90210" fame presented the game ball.
