SALT LAKE CITY — Andre Drummond had 19 points and 14 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons shot a season-best 55 percent to blow by the Utah Jazz 114-94 Monday night.

Rodney Stuckey scored 19, Greg Monroe had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Brandon Jennings added 15 points to help the Pistons snap a 14-game road losing streak in the finale of a four-game Western Conference trip.

Gordon Hayward scored 32 points — his highest total since he had 37 against Oklahoma City on Jan. 7 — to lead the Jazz, who have lost seven of eight.

Hayward converted a three-point play to slice the lead to 88-76 with 10:03 to play, but the Jazz couldn't get any closer. Each time they made a run, the Pistons responded with a 3-pointer or a basket near the rim.

Detroit went 9 for 17 from 3-point range and ended a five-game losing streak.
