Pistons hold on for 85-84 win over Hawks

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Austin Daye had a season-best 20 points and the Detroit Pistons beat the Atlanta Hawks 85-84 on Friday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

The Hawks, who trailed by as many as 19, had a chance to win in the final seconds, but Andre Drummond blocked Lou Williams' jumper at the buzzer to preserve the win.

The Pistons have won 6 of 7 overall, with the only loss coming in double overtime at Atlanta. The second unit has powered the surge, outscoring the starters in several games, and the reserves outscored Atlanta's backups 41-14, led by Daye.

Greg Monroe added 18 points and nine rebounds for Detroit.
