Redick then came off a screen to hit a 3, and Afflalo tied up Monroe to force a turnover at the other end. Davis made it a four-point game with a baby hook in the lane, and Redick clinched the game from the line.
Detroit led 50-44 at the half, then expanded the advantage early in the third by exploiting Prince's matchup with Afflalo. Prince dominated his former teammate in the post, scoring 10 points in the first four minutes of the half.
The Pistons built a 13-point lead, but Orlando rallied after Nelson gave a spirited pep talk during a timeout.
The Magic closed to 75-71 at the end of the third, and tied it at 85 on Redick's 3-pointer with 8:16 to play.
