ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A game-ending basket, with more than 9 minutes on the clock.

Only in the Summer League.

Pierre Jackson scored 48 seconds into the second overtime, and the Detroit Pistons topped the Miami Heat 73-71 in the final of three games Tuesday at the Orlando Pro Summer League.

The teams played a scoreless first 2-minute overtime, and the second OT was next-point-wins.

Miami was up by three with 1.1 seconds left but fouled rookie Luke Kennard as he tried a 3-pointer -- and he hit all three free throws to tie the game.

Injury watch

The injuries are piling up in Orlando and will affect Las Vegas too.

Orlando will be without Jonathan Isaac for the remainder of its summer slate this week because of a strained left hip. The good news for the Magic there is that an MRI showed that it's only a strain for the No. 6 pick in this year's draft.

Indiana's Rakeem Christmas (left ankle sprain) and Jordan Loyd (left hand) were sidelined for the second half Tuesday.

And Minnesota rookie Justin Patton will not play in the summer league that starts this weekend in Las Vegas after breaking his foot in a workout. Patton, the No. 16 pick, had surgery to repair the fifth metatarsal and is out indefinitely.

The Orlando and Utah leagues end Thursday. Orlando crowns a champion, Utah does not.

Inside the boxscore

Oklahoma City's Marcus Paige had six assists and only one turnover in a 95-81 loss to Charlotte. Oklahoma City led by 10 and trailed by 20.

All 10 Indiana players who got minutes had at least one turnover. The Pacers had 24 giveaways in all, and Dallas turned them into 40 points to help fuel its 94-79 win.

Whatever Christian Wood was doing for the Mavericks worked wonders. He played 15 minutes, scored nine points, grabbed seven rebounds and was a plus-14.
