Ugochukwu Njoku scored 11 points for Detroit, which made it a one-possession game in the final 30 seconds - closing to 81-79 on Matthew Grant's 3-pointer with 6.6 seconds left.

 

Warren hit a free throw with 5.9 seconds left. Detroit got a good look on its final possession but Jarod Williams' deep 3 bounced off the iron as the buzzer sounded.
