Andre Drummond and the Pistons were joined on the bench by a special guest during Detroit’s 114–101 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Late in the fourth quarter, with the Pistons up by 20, a young fan took the spot between Drummond and Reggie Jackson and seemed to be a bit chatty.

The Pistons won their fourth consecutive game and improved to 31–29 while Toronto fell to 39–19. Drummond, a first-time All-Star this season, scored 15 points and added 18 rebounds.

Detroit had lost five in a row before its current winning streak. 

“Our ball movement's better, and because our ball movement’s better, we’re shooting the ball better,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said after the game. “We played better offensively tonight, no question.”
