Pistons starting point guard Reggie Jackson, who has missed Detroit's first 21 games this season after knee and thumb procedures, returned to action on Sunday

Pistons win big against good opponent

The Pistons' 36-point win over the Hawks was the franchise's second biggest over a team that entered a game vs. Detroit over .500, per the Elias Sports Bureau. The biggest was a 52-point win over a 26-19 Celtics team in 2003.

Pistons' Drummond fined $15K for Hibbert hit

After being ejected from Tuesday's game for an elbow to the head of Hornets center Roy Hibbert, Pistons big man Andre Drummond smiled and mockingly clapped the call as he walked off the court.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Pistons 121, Celtics 114: Offensive rebounds certainly hurt Boston (13, including 8 by Andre Drummond leading to 18 second-chance points) but the Pistons — playing the second night of a back-to-back — made an absurd amount of tough shots (shooting 55.2 percent overall) and didn't wilt when Boston rallied ahead in the fourth quarter. Drummond finished with 20 points, 17 rebounds to lead all Pistons in double-figures for scoring. Isaiah Thomas posted a team-high 27 points for Boston.

Thomas makes incredible shot over the backboard...that doesn't count (0:37)

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

It didn't count but you'll probably see it on SportsCenter: Isaiah Thomas got fouled on a drive to the hoop and, while running out of bounds, sent a rainbow over the backboard that somehow went in. Attempts to lobby for continuation were unsuccessful.
