Andre Drummond's double-double leads Pistons past 76ers

Posted at 10:29 PM, Oct 15, 2016
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Andre Drummond had 10 points and 13 rebounds and the Detroit Pistons beat the Philadelphia 76ers 97-76.
   
Tobias Harris scored a game-high 18 for the Pistons to go along with six rebounds, two assists and one steal. Detroit improved to 2-2.
   
The 76ers (1-5) may have lost, but coach Brett Brown had good news about two of their young players. Brown said Joel Embiid could play both games of back-to-backs once the season begins despite missing the last two seasons because of a broken right foot and being on a preseason minutes restriction. Embiid scored a team-high 15 and grabbed five rebounds, but had seven turnovers.
   
Jahlil Okafor had surgery for a meniscus tear in March and has not played in the preseason, but Brown said he should be ready for the season opener on October 26.
