AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Andre Drummond had his best night on the boards.
He was happier about another rare feat. Drummond had 17 points and a career-high 26 rebounds to match a single-season franchise record with his 44th double-double, helping the Detroit Pistons surge to beat the New York Knicks 96-85 Monday night in a matchup of slumping teams.
The Pistons had lost four straight and seven of eight.
“I’m just happy we won the game,” Drummond said when asked about his career-high rebounding total.
Drummond’s 26 rebounds matched Houston’s Dwight Howard for the most in an NBA game this season.
“He’s a young, explosive player,” New York’s Tyson Chandler said. “We missed a lot of shots, so we helped him out.”
New York has dropped seven straight games and 13-of-15.

AVONDALE, Ariz. — Kevin Harvick and the rest of the new team at Stewart-Haas Racing are still trying to learn everyone’s names.
That hasn’t stopped them from winning right away.
Dominating from the start, Harvick raced away from the field for his second straight win at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday, putting a stamp of validation on his new relationship with Stewart-Haas Racing.
“This phenomenal,” said Gene Haas, co-owner of SHR with Tony Stewart. “I think there was a lot of skepticism last year about what myself and Tony (Stewart) what we were up to, was there a lot of madness to this. Quite frankly, it’s a great team, there’s a lot of synergy at the shop, people working together. I don’t know what we did, but I think we put together a great organization.”
Harvick raised a few eyebrows last season when word leaked that he was leaving Richard Childress Racing, a team he had been a part of since 1999, for Stewart-Haas.

Short-handed Indiana beats No. 22 Ohio State 72-64 PDF Print E-mail

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.  — Ohio State looked dazed and confused.
The Buckeyes couldn’t make 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers or almost anything outside the paint at Assembly Hall. Even Ohio State coach Thad Matta couldn’t believe it.
On a day Indiana was missing its best NBA prospect, Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored 20 points, Will Sheehey added 19 and the Hoosiers upset No. 22 Ohio State 72-64 on Sunday.
“I think it was just we couldn’t make a shot, you know 0 for 11 from 3, that was kind of the deal,” Matta said. “We were short on everything. They didn’t go down. It was definitely one of those days in that regard.”
While LaQuinton Ross and Lenzelle Smith Jr. scored 19 points each, nobody else finished with more than seven points. Even the usually reliable Aaron Craft struggled, going just 2 of 11 from the field.  He finished with seven points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.
Ohio State (22-8, 9-8 Big Ten) has lost two straight, both on the road against teams in the bottom half of the conference standings.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — After sleep-walking through the first half, the Grizzlies managed to wake up in time to claim their fifth straight victory at home.
Zach Randolph had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Memphis used a big second half to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-96 Saturday night.
“Coach just stated the obvious — that we can’t let a team come in here and dominate us on both ends of the court,” Memphis guard Mike Conley said of Dave Joerger’s halftime speech. “We just went out there and tried to be aggressive defensively.”
Randolph had 17 points in the second half to help Memphis outscore Cleveland 56-31 and rally from an early 15-point deficit. Conley and Marc Gasol scored 22 each for the Grizzlies. Conley added seven assists and Gasol had six.
Courtney Lee finished with 19 points, including a career-high five 3-pointers, and Tony Allen had 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

HOUSTON — Houston is starting to make a habit of 40-point first quarters.
After not scoring 40 points in the opening quarter in the last five seasons, the Rockets have done it five times this season and twice in the last three games.
Terrence Jones had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and the Rockets opened a big early lead and beat the Detroit Pistons 118-110 on Saturday night for their third win in four games.
Jones finished 10 of 15 from the floor as Houston shot 50 percent for the game, including 61 percent in the first half. Houston scored 41 points in the first quarter and finished 11 of 33 from behind the arc.
“We got a big halftime lead and didn’t play well in the second half,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. “We came out and really moved the ball. We had it going up and down and just did a nice job of doing what we’ve been talking about doing, which is attacking early, getting inside to Dwight (Howard) and making some nice passes.”
