Pistons sweep Raptors this season

Category: 

DETROIT—Blake Griffin scored 25 points as the Detroit Pistons beat the Toronto Raptors 110-107 yesterday to complete a season sweep.

Reggie Jackson added 20 points, while Andre Drummond had 15 points and 17 rebounds, to help the Pistons win for the 14th time in their last 18 games.

Kawhi Leonard had 33 points for Toronto and Fred VanVleet added 17 points.

The Raptors now have lost four of seven games.

Drummond gave Detroit a 102-100 lead with two free throws with 1:25 to play.

He then knocked the ball away from Leonard to set Wayne Ellington's lay-up that made it 104-100.

Leonard hit two free throws but Griffin answered with a basket in the paint.

Griffin, though, missed two free throws with two seconds left and a three-point lead.

The Pistons then fouled Leonard, who missed both shots, with Drummond grabbing the rebound off the intentional second miss.

Kyle Lowry missed his second-straight game for the Raptors because of a sprained left ankle.

VanVleet returned after missing 12 games with a thumb injury.
