First round draft pick Andre Drummond had 8 points, 5 boards and 2 blocks in his Pistons debut.
Second year point guard Brandon Knight added 17 points in the win.
The Pistons trailed by 9 heading into the half, but an explosive third quarter helped the team overpower a Jazz run at the end of the game.
