Drummond leads way, Pistons beat Bulls 147-144 in 4 OT
CHICAGO (AP) — Andre Drummond had 33 points and 21 rebounds, Reggie Jackson scored 31 points and the Detroit Pistons outlasted the Chicago Bulls 147-144 in four overtimes on Friday night.
The Pistons scored the first seven points of the fourth OT and hung on after things got real tense in the final seconds.
Chicago’s Jimmy Butler, who scored a career-high 43 points, nailed an off-balance 3-pointer to cut it to 145-144 with 4.7 seconds left.
The Bulls immediately fouled Jackson, who made both free throws to make it a three-point game.
Butler then missed a 3 as time expired, bringing a wild game to a finish.
Derrick Rose scored a season-high 34 for Chicago. Pau Gasol added 30 points and 15 rebounds, but the Bulls couldn’t pull this one out after tying a season high with four straight wins.
