Pacers Down Pistons

Caris LeVert scored 20 of his season-high 31 points in the first half and the Indiana Pacers sent the Detroit Pistons to their 13th straight loss, 122-113 on Thursday night.


The Pacers were without point guard Malcolm Brogdon because of a sore Achilles. LeVert said having his backcourt mate out didn't change how he played.


LeVert was 12 of 18 from the field.


Justin Holiday added 17 points for Indiana, shooting 5 of 15.


Saddiq Bey led the Pistons with 28 points and 10 rebounds. Cade Cunningham added 19 points, and Frank Jackson had 18. Detroit is an NBA-worst 4-23.


The Pistons were 26 of 30 from the foul line, while the Pacers made 25 of 28.


The Pacers had to play the last several minutes of the third quarter without Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner after they each picked up their fourth foul. Despite Sabonis playing just a little more than four minutes and Turner 6 1/2, the Pacers were able to take a 103-91 lead.


Turner finished with 16 points and four blocked shots. Sabonis had 12 points and nine rebounds.


The Pacers are at Miami on Tuesday night.
