Celtics lose eighth straight

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Rodney Stuckey came off the bench to score 26 points and help the Detroit Pistons rally for a 115-111 win over the Boston Celtics on Saturday night.

The Pistons trailed by as many as 19 points in third quarter and were down 95-85 at the start of the fourth before going on a 15-4 run that gave them their first lead since early in the game. The teams traded the lead several times before Stuckey made a pair of free throws with 57 seconds left to break a 111-all tie.

Jerryd Bayless tried for a go-ahead shot in the final seconds but his 3-point try rimmed out.

Greg Monroe scored 21 points, Brandon Jennings had 20 and Andre Drummond added 19 and 20 rebounds to help Detroit end a two-game skid.

Bayless had 25 points and Jeff Green had 22 as the Celtics lost their eighth straight.
