And he shined insane bright, with career highs 22 points and 15 rebounds, shooting 9-of-15 from the field.Nance has been brilliant since he was traded to Cleveland by the Lakers on February 8. He was the center of Tyronn Lue's newest starting lineup that still has a familiar anchor who's pretty good. He drained a trio of 3s during that 17-5 run, including a pullup in transition to finish it off. Defensively, the Pistons are yielding 104.0 points per game against the opposing teams. Hood finished with 13 points on the night.

Cedi Osman still performed well in a reserve role - adding 12 points, going 5-of-11 from the floor to go with six boards and a pair of assists.

Thompson's loss is another blow to the defending Eastern Conference champions, who are struggling without All-Star forward Kevin Love (broken hand) and could be without forward Jeff Green (sore back) for a few more games.

Additionally, Nance Jr. corralled four offensive rebounds, and more importantly than that, 11 on the defensive end while guarding Detroit center Andre Drummond, who is known for his ability to create second-chance opportunities. The Pistons had just traded for Blake Griffin the night before, so he didn't play. Drummond contributed 15 points and nine boards, but only took five shots.

Bojan Bogdanovic tied his season high with 29 points and grabbed a key jump ball late to lift the Pacers to a 37-27 record.

In the last two games, Nance has 32 points in the first half. They beat the Cavs 125-114 on January 30 - the night Love broke that bone early in the first quarter - behind 21 points and 22 rebounds from Drummond.
