AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Greg Monroe had 23 points and 18 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons held off the New York Knicks 98-95 Wednesday night for their first win of the season.

The Pistons (1-3) went 1 for 17 on 3-pointers in Sunday’s loss to Brooklyn, but Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit their first three attempts against New York, and they ended up with a season-high 11.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 points for the Knicks (2-3), who lost at home to Washington on Tuesday night. They were facing a rested Detroit team that had two days off before the game.

Carmelo Anthony had only 13 points on 5-of-21 shooting for New York.
