Pistons top Magic with Jackson's triple-double

Mar 28, 2015 - 2:55 AM Orlando, FL ( - Reggie Jackson's 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists led the Detroit Pistons to a 111-97 win over the Orlando Magic on Friday.

After a stretch in which it lost 11 out of 12 games, Detroit has now won four in a row.

"We want to really tune in defensively," said Jackson. "The great teams in the league know sometimes you're not going to have your best night shooting, but if you play defense, you have a chance."

Tayshaun Prince scored a season-high 23 points off the bench, and Andre Drummond added 16 points and nine rebounds.

The Magic lost their third straight game despite a 20-point, 14-rebound effort from Nikola Vucevic. Tobias Harris paced all five Orlando starters in double figures with 21 points and Elfrid Payton contributed 14 points and 13 assists.

Sloppy play hurt Orlando all night. The Magic shot 52.4 percent, but 17 turnovers led to 23 Detroit points.

"You've got to take care of the ball," said interim Magic coach James Borrego. "You can't get casual."

The Pistons started to pull away when they outscored Orlando 33-23 in the third quarter with 17 points from Jackson. After Anthony Tolliver's long 3 early in the period put Detroit in front, Jackson scored 11 of the Pistons' next 13 points. Detroit led 87-76 after three.

Detroit led by as many as 17 in the fourth. Jackson's jumper put the Pistons up 108-91, and his assist on Joel Anthony's layup with 1 1/2 minutes remaining secured his second triple-double of the season.

Offense was not hard to come by for either team in the first quarter. The Pistons led 30-27 after one when they scored on five of their last six trips down the floor, and they held a 54-53 lead at the break despite Orlando shooting 61.5 percent in the first 24 minutes.
