Andre Drummond scored 33 points and had 21 rebounds as the Detroit Pistons needed four overtimes to beat the Chicago Bulls 147-144.

Reggie Jackson added 31 points and the Pistons saw off a Bulls side who were on a four-game winning run. In defeat, Chicago's Jimmy Butler scored a career-best 43 points and Derrick Rose plundered 34 points.

Jackson said of the win: "I felt awake. I felt alive. I wasn't really tired, especially when we got into those late overtimes. I think just the moment takes over. I am just happy to be a part of a game like that."

He added, on the team's website: "You just dig deep and find a way to keep the beat. I think both sides did that. I think we put on a great show tonight."

The Golden State Warriors made no mistake this time against the Milwaukee Bucks, the only team to beat them in the NBA this season.
