AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) Wesley Johnson scored 27 points, and Jordan Farmar led a fourth-quarter rally by the Los Angeles Lakers, who overcame a 10-point deficit to beat the Detroit Pistons 106-102 on Friday night.

Dominated around the basket for most of the night, the Lakers held on when Detroit's Josh Smith drove into traffic and was called for an offensive foul with 2.7 seconds left and the Pistons down two. Nick Young made two free throws at the other end to put the game away.

The Pistons outscored the Lakers 76-28 in the paint, but Los Angeles went 14 of 31 from 3-point range, with Johnson connecting six times from beyond the arc. Detroit did not make a field goal from outside the paint until about midway through the third quarter.
