AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Andre Drummond had 17 points and nine rebounds to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 91-69 exhibition victory Tuesday night over Maccabi Haifa, the reigning Israeli Basketball Super League champions.

David Cubillan scored 20 points for Maccabi.

Drummond and the Pistons dominated inside with 54 points in the paint - just 15 points fewer than Maccabi scored all game.

Detroit newcomer Brandon Jennings scored 15 points on 4 of 8 shooting, while fellow newcomer Josh Smith added 12 points, including three 3-pointers.
