Andre Drummond had 22 points and 13 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons held off a determined Brooklyn rally, beating the Nets 103-99 on Friday night.
   Detroit led by 21 early in the third quarter, but the Nets cut the deficit to two before Detroit's Kyle Singler made two free throws with 10 seconds left. The Pistons snapped a three-game losing streak and ended Brooklyn's three-game winning streak.
   Drummond, who was shooting 38 percent from the foul line coming into the game -- and was much worse than that earlier this season -- went 6 of 8 on free throws. Those shots ended up being crucial.
   Deron Williams led Brooklyn with 22 points. The Nets were without center Brook Lopez, who sat out with a sprained left ankle.
