Wizards' defense steps up in 101-87 victory over Pistons

WASHINGTON (AP) Exchanging their freewheeling ways for an improved defensive showing, the Washington Wizards looked like an entirely different team in their first game back from London.

The Wizards turned in their best defensive performance of the season on Monday in beating the Detroit Pistons 101-87. Even though Blake Griffin put up a game-high 29 points, Detroit's scoring output was the lowest by a Washington opponent this year.

That's a major step forward for the NBA's second-worst defensive team.
