Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) – Brandon Jennings scored 28 points, including
the go-ahead 3-pointer, and the Detroit Pistons came back from 21 down to beat
the Boston Celtics 107-106 on Wednesday.

After Jared Sullinger hit a 3-pointer to give Boston a 105-104 lead with 1:01
remaining, Jennings knocked one down at the other end for a two-point Detroit
lead with 46.7 seconds left.

Sullinger missed one of two free throws later on but the Celtics still had a
chance to win the game. Jeff Green was guarded closely by Josh Smith, however,
after an inbounds pass with 5.0 ticks on the clock and Green missed a driving
layup at the buzzer.

Jennings had 14 assists, Smith scored 20 and Andre Drummond had 14 points and
16 rebounds for the Pistons, who improved to 6-1 in their last seven games on
the road, including Monday’s win over Eastern Conference-leading Indiana.

Sullinger had 19 points to lead the Celtics, who had a two-game winning streak
snapped. Jordan Crawford added 17 points in the loss, Avery Bradley scored 14
and Green had 13.
