NEW YORK -

Shaun Livingston scored 23 points, Mirza Teletovic made six 3-pointers and added 20, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Detroit Pistons 116-104 on Friday night to extend their home winning streak to 15 games.

Brooklyn made seven straight from beyond the arc in the second quarter to take control, led by Teletovic, who made four. In all, the Nets outscored Detroit 35-9 over a span of 8:23 to take a 51-31 advantage.

The Pistons, who once trailed by 22, cut the deficit to nine at one point in the fourth quarter, led by Andre Drummond, who scored 23 and pulled down 18 boards. But Brooklyn was too balanced, putting six players scored in double figures.

Brooklyn remained 2 1/2 games behind the Toronto Raptors, who beat Indiana on Friday night, in the race for the No. 3 seed in the East.
