HOUSTON (AP) - Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marcus Morris each scored 22 points and Detroit beat Houston despite Andre Drummond setting an NBA record by missing 23 free throws.

The Hack-A-Shaq tactic allowed the Rockets to take the lead in the third quarter when they did it 12 straight times, but it didn't help them close the gap in the fourth when Drummond went out for good with 5 1/2 minutes left after seven hacks in the quarter and Detroit leading 107-94.
