Pistons snap skid with 111-97 win over Grizzlies

DETROIT (AP) Wayne Ellington and Cory Joseph scored 18 points apiece to help the Detroit Pistons snap a four-game losing streak with a 111-97 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday night.

The Grizzlies dropped a half-game behind Golden State for eighth place in the Western Conference, failing to take advantage of the matchup against a Detroit team with more than a few absences.

The Pistons still have the second-worst record in the NBA, but they're just a half-game behind Minnesota, and Oklahoma City, Orlando and Cleveland aren't far ahead of Detroit.
