Butler, 76ers rally without Embiid, beat Pistons 117-111

DETROIT (AP) The Philadelphia 76ers gave their standout center a night off, fell behind by 15 points on the road - and then came back to beat the Detroit Pistons anyway.

"This was our best win of the year under those circumstances," coach Brett Brown said.

Jimmy Butler scored 38 points, and the 76ers overcame Joel Embiid's absence Friday night, rallying from a sizable third-quarter deficit to beat the Pistons 117-111. Blake Griffin had 31 points and 12 rebounds for Detroit, but the Pistons squandered their 15-point third-quarter lead, as well as a six-point advantage in the fourth.
