Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Jose Calderon's layup with 1:06 remaining
proved to be the difference-maker, as the Detroit Pistons picked up a much-
needed 96-95 victory over the Washington Wizards, on Wednesday.
Brandon Knight netted 32 points and had five 3-pointers and Greg Monroe scored
26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Pistons, who ended a three-game
losing skid. Kim English came off the bench to add 10 points on 4-of-6
shooting and Kyle Singler donated nine points in the victory.
Knight had missed the last three games with a hyperextended right knee.
Trevor Ariza paced Washington with 22 points and grabbed six boards, while
Bradley Beal had 16 points and six rebounds for the Wizards, who were coming
off three straight victories.
Ariza, who knocked down a pair of free throws with 12 seconds to play bring
the home team within one, had a last-second chance, but his corner 3-point
attempt missed the rim completely.
