Fired-up Pistons take out Warriors

The Pistons’ Reggie Jackson drives against the Warriors’ Klay Thompson in the first quarter of Detroit’s upset victory.

The Pistons’ Reggie Jackson drives against the Warriors’ Klay Thompson in the first quarter of Detroit’s upset victory.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Kentavious Caldwell-Pope held his own against Stephen Curry for most of the night with 20 points as the Pistons handed the Warriors their second loss in three games, 113-95 Saturday.

Much of the pregame talk centered around how Caldwell-Pope would defend Curry. The Golden State star scored 38, but Caldwell-Pope gave the Pistons a boost offensively.

At 37-4, the Warriors reached the midway point of the regular season a win short of the best 41-game start in NBA history. The 1971-72 Lakers and 1995-96 Bulls started 38-3.

Detroit retired Ben Wallace's No. 3 jersey at halftime, and by that time the Pistons led 65-49 on a raucous night.

Drummond had 14 points and 21 rebounds, and Reggie Jackson scored 20 for Detroit. The Pistons had six players in double figures. Klay Thompson scored 24 for the Warriors.

Kobe skipping Rio: Kobe Bryant said he is removing himself from consideration for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team for Rio de Janeiro this summer, meaning the five-time NBA champion's retirement begins when his 20th season with the Lakers ends. "I've come to terms with the fact that they are the future of this game," said Bryant, a gold medalist in 2008 and 2012. "These are the guys who deserve the spots in Rio."

Game highlights: Jahlil Okafor had 25 points and 10 rebounds to help the host 76ers snap a four-game losing streak with a 114-89 rout of the Trail Blazers. … Paul Millsap scored 21 to go past 10,000 points for his career, leading Atlanta to a dominant second half in a 114-86 win over the visiting Nets.

Around the league: With former Florida star Joakim Noah (separated left shoulder) sidelined, the Bulls recalled forward Cristiano Felicio from Canton of the D-League.
