Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Jackson sprains ankle, will undergo MRI

Tobias Harris scored 21 points of his game-high 30 points in the first quarter as the Detroit Pistons crushed the Indiana Pacers 107-83 Tuesday.

He screamed in pain on the floor and put no weight on his right ankle as he was assisted off the court.

After the game, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said that X-rays came back negative and that Jackson would undergo an MRI tomorrow.

Auburn on minds of Scott Frost, UCF as Peach Bowl week begins
UCF could have as much speed as any team as Auburn has faced this season. "Everybody's confident and we play for each other". UCF also hasn't yet faced a defense near as good as Auburn's, which ranks 13th nationally allowing 312.3 yards per game.

SPURS 109, NETS 97: Kawhi Leonard scored 21 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 and San Antonio won at home in its first game of the season with every player healthy and available.

When NBA fans think of incredible ball-handling skills, one would not expect to think of Detroit Pistons star center Andre Drummond. However, the Pistons are really starting to build some momentum again and a win over the Pacers would do wonders for their confidence given their lack of success against the Pacers in recent seasons. Ish Smith had 12 points and Reggie Bullock had 11. The teams combined to make just 5 of 31 shots in the final eight minutes — including two misses by Serge Ibaka with the Raptors trailing by three before Barea hit a layup with 10 seconds left after dribbling out most of the shot clock.

The Pacers have been a little below their last in their last six games or so, but there's no doubt that Oladipo is having a great season and he looked great in the overtime win on Saturday. Kyle Lowry led Toronto with 23 points but didnt score in the fourth quarter, while DeRozan couldnt get going at all after averaging 37 points on a three-game road winning streak that ended. Detroit recorded 14 assists on 15 baskets in the quarter, with Jackson distributing half of them.
