For the second straight game, the Detroit Pistons had a big third-quarter lead at home. This time, they kept pouring it on.

Andre Drummond scored 14 of his season-high 27 points in the third and the Pistons snapped Denver's six-game winning streak, beating the Nuggets 129-103 on Monday night.

Trey Lyles had 20 points for the Nuggets, who dropped out of a tie with Golden State for the best record in the Western Conference.

Denver was without forward Paul Millsap, sidelined by right ankle soreness, and the Nuggets were also missing Gary Harris (right adductor strain) and Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain). 

Bagley's career-high 24 points lead Kings past Spurs 127-112

Marvin Bagley III signaled for the ball, caught a lob from Yogi Ferrell and nearly did a full 360-degree turn in the air before dunking it. It was just the latest highlight during an impressive run for Sacramento's emerging rookie star.

Collison lifts Pacers over Pelicans 109-107

Darren Collison came through with the kind of late-game heroics fans in New Orleans hoped to see when they welcomed him to the Big Easy as a 2009 first-round draft choice.

All the more reason for the Indiana Pacers to be glad Collison plays for them now.

Collison scored 22 points, highlighted by his 3-pointer and 20-foot jumper over 6-foot-11 center Jahlil Okafor during the final two minutes, and the Pacers held off the depleted Pelicans 109-107 on Monday night.

"Collison is capable of doing that," Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. "He made some big shots tonight and he is the guy we've gone to as far as late in games, putting the ball in his hands."
