NBA roundup: Celtics hand Pistons their sixth consecutive loss

Al Horford scored 18 points, Kyrie Irving had 16 and the Boston Celtics got past the host Detroit Pistons 91-81 on Sunday.

The Pistons have lost six games in a row for the first time since late in the 2014-15 season.

Boston shut down the Pistons after giving up a season-high 118 points to them in a loss at home last month. The Celtics held Detroit to a season low in points and forced it to miss two-thirds of its shots.

“We were locked in,” said Boston center Aron Baynes, who collected 13 rebounds.

Tobias Harris scored 19 points for the Pistons and reserve Anthony Tolliver had 15.
