ORLANDO -- The Detroit Pistons used a balanced scoring attack to take their first win of the week, a 76-73 victory over the Utah Jazz on day one of the 2012 AirTran Airways Orlando Pro Summer League. Four Pistons registered double figures, led by Kim English's 18 and Brandon Knight's 17 points.

Both teams struggled from the floor in the first half, but it was the Jazz that jumped out to the early lead, limiting the Pistons to 25 first-half points en route to a nine-point halftime advantage.

The Pistons shot just 30.3 percent from the field in the first half but exploded after the break, shooting 75.0 percent and outscoring Utah 32-11 in the third period.

Detroit took their first lead since the final minute of first quarter at the 5:28 mark and controlled the remainder of the stanza, holding Utah scoreless for nearly five minutes and ending the quarter on a 20-4 run to build a 57-45 lead. Detroit made 12-of-16 shots in the third compared to the Jazz's 28.6 field goal percentage, and turned seven Utah turnovers into 13 points.

The Jazz came close, but couldn't overcome the 12-point deficit heading into the fourth. Utah cut the Detroit lead in half in the waning moments of the game, coming as close as four, 74-70, with 5.5 seconds remaining.

But Utah simply ran out of time, as two Austin Daye free throws pushed the lead back to six before a Deron Washington three-pointer at the buzzer provided the final score.

Utah was led in scoring by Washington's 13 points while Alec Burks contributed 10.
