DETROIT (AP) — Mo Bamba had 22 points and 15 rebounds — both career highs — and the Orlando Magic beat the Detroit Pistons 119-112.

Saddiq Bey led Detroit with 26 points in a game that had little at stake — with the possible exception of lottery positioning.

The Pistons have the second-worst record in the NBA. Orlando is now even with Oklahoma City for the fourth-worst mark.

The Magic led 51-48 at halftime and then shot 13 of 18 from the field in the third.
