AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Kyle Lowry scored 25 points, and the Toronto Raptors went on an 11-2 run at the start of the fourth quarter to pull away for their 14th victory in 15 games, 103-89 over the Detroit Pistons on Monday night.

Terrence Ross added 18 points for the Raptors, who recovered quickly after Detroit's Andre Drummond made a shot from about 80 feet to end the third quarter. Toronto led 70-65 at the start of the fourth, and Lowry's driving three-point play set the tone for the final period.

The Atlantic Division-leading Raptors eventually turned the game into a rout, to the delight of the many Toronto fans in attendance at the Palace.

Drummond had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Pistons.
