AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Deron Williams scored 31 points in 28 minutes, and the Brooklyn Nets routed the hapless Detroit Pistons 119-82 Monday night in the opener of their eight-game road trip.

Detroit lost its ninth straight and fell to 2-13 since the All-Star break. Pistons coach Lawrence Frank returned after missing six games to be with his seriously ill wife. Frank is planning to return to New Jersey before Detroit plays Friday in Miami.
