Guard Kemba Walker led the Bobcats with 20 points on 9-for-23 shooting. Forward Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons with 21 points on 9-for-15 shooting, along with seven rebounds and three assists.
Walker tied the game at 96-96 with seven seconds remaining in regulation, sending a floater just above Andre Drummond's fingertips in the lane. Guard Rodney Stuckey airballed a 22-foot jumper with one second remaining, leading to overtime.
The Bobcats opened overtime with an 8-2 run en route to the win.
