Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Brooklyn Nets bested the Detroit Pistons in double overtime on Friday.

The Brooklyn Nets bested the Detroit Pistons in double overtime on Friday by a score of 107-105. The Pistons were trailing heading into the third frame, when they outscored Brooklyn 30-17 to swing the game in their direction. Brooklyn responded with a 17-13 frame to end regulation, and both teams put up 10 in the first overtime.

Brooklyn narrowly edged Detroit in the second overtime, 7-5.

Joe Johnson had a great day for Brooklyn, playing 52 minutes with 28 points, shooting 12-for-22 from the field with four rebounds and five assists. Gerald Wallace was right behind him, shooting 9-for-15 from the field and 3-for-6 from range, with 10 rebounds and two assists, for 25 points total. Deron Williams came up in third with 17 points. The Nets improved to 13-9 with their second straight victory.

For Detroit, who fell to 7-18 with a loss, Brandon Knight had a good game, with 22 points off of 8-for-18 shooting, but aside from him, nobody had great games for the Pistons. Limiting them from big performances was the key to victory here, even if they had to fight into a double overtime for the win.
