ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) It took a while, but once the Detroit Pistons got Reggie Jackson going north and south with the basketball, they easily ran away from the Orlando Magic.
Jackson scored 26 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and handed out 10 assists as the Pistons cruised to a 111-97 win over the Magic. Tayshaun Prince added 23 points and Andre Drummond had 16 points and nine rebounds for Detroit.
It was the fourth straight victory for the Pistons and Jackson's second triple-double since joining Detroit. Most of his damage was done in the third period, when he had 17 points, five rebounds and three assists as Detroit pushed a one-point halftime lead to 87-76 by the end of the quarter.
