If Reggie Jackson (6'3''-PG-90, college: Boston Coll.) and Andre Drummond (6'10''-C-93, college: Connecticut) play like they did Thursday night, the Detroit Pistons shouldn't have much trouble making the playoffs. Drummond had 20 points and 16 rebounds, and the Pistons scored the first 13 points of the fourth quarter before holding on for a 106-101 victory over the injury-plagued Cleveland Cavaliers. Jackson led Detroit with 21 points, including 12 in the final period. ''My teammates were just telling me to go out there and be myself, be aggressive on offense and try to make the right play,'' Jackson said. ''It was a great team win, and most importantly, our defensive stops is what really got us the win.'' Detroit now leads Chicago by a half-game for the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference. LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) had 29 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists - and threw down over a half-dozen tremendous dunks - but the Cavaliers have now lost three straight and five of their last seven. J.R. Smith played for Cleveland after a thumb injury had kept him out since December, but Kevin Love (6'10''-PF-88, college: UCLA) and Kyle Korver (6'7''-F/G-81, college: Creighton) were out, and the Cavaliers lost Andrew Bogut earlier in the week with a broken leg . Cleveland led 80-73 after finishing the third quarter with a 22-5 run, but the Pistons started strong in the fourth, and a tip-in by Jackson gave Detroit an 82-80 advantage. Jackson also beat the shot clock with a floater with 55 seconds left, lifting the Pistons to a 103-98 lead. James and Kyrie Irving had 19 points each in the first half, but Detroit led 55-52 after two quarters. James had five dunks in the half, including a two-hander in the first quarter in which he swung a bit on the rim and received a technical foul. That play gave Cleveland a 27-12 advantage. Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Detroit's Marcus Morris (6'9''-F-89, college: Kansas) asserted himself in the huddle at that point. ''He stopped and said, 'I got this,''' Van Gundy said. ''He went after them pretty good, to the point that I had to be the one to be positive after he was done. I'm not usually good cop, so that was a little bit interesting.'' Detroit was up 68-58 in the third before Cleveland closed the quarter with a huge run. Channing Frye made four 3-pointers for the Cavs in that stretch, all from around the same spot on the right wing. Irving finished with 27 points.

In an expected move, Knicks reserve center Kyle O'Quinn (6'10''-F-90, college: Norfolk St.) declined his $4.2 million player option and will become a free agent, a source confirmed.
