Pistons beat Pacers, end Lawrence Frank's 20-game skid

Auburn Hills, Michigan:

Jonas Jerebko had 20 points and 12 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons ended Lawrence Frank's 20-game losing streak with a 96-88 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.

Jerebko, who missed all of last season after tearing his Achilles' tendon in the preseason, narrowly missed his career bests of 22 points and 13 boards.

Frank hadn't won a game since April 13, 2009, when his Nets beat the Charlotte Bobcats. The Nets lost their final game that season, and Frank was fired after New Jersey got off to a 0-16 start the next fall. He also lost his first three games with the Pistons since replacing John Kuester during the off-season.

Tyler Hansbrough and George Hill each had 16 points off the bench for the Pacers.
