Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) - Brandon Knight penetrated the lane to score the game-winning layup, lifting the Detroit Pistons to a 91-90 victory over the Toronto Raptors at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Knight, who finished with 16 points, scored his final basket with the Pistons trailing by one. He used a Greg Monroe pick to split the defense and score the go-ahead layup with just over seven seconds remaining.

For the second game in a row, the Raptors lost a one-point contest in devastating fashion. Kyle Lowry scored 19 points, but miss-fired on the Raptors' final two possessions, the second bouncing off the back-rim and over the backboard to seal the win for the Pistons.

Andrea Bargnani poured in a game-high 34 points on 13-of-20 shooting for Toronto, which has dropped eight of its last 10 games.
