On the night Ben Wallace set the record for most games by an undrafted NBA player, he turned back the clock.

Wallace scored a season-high nine points but, as usual, it was his defensive work that allowed the Pistons to rally against the red-hot San Antonio Spurs Tuesday. He held Tim Duncan to six second-half points and gave Duncan a cut under his eye with an inadvertent elbow but the Pistons still fell short, 99-95.

“When he’s done playing, when he’s retired, he’s probably going to be recognized as the best forward to ever play the game,” Wallace said. “Just having the opportunity to go out there and match up with him, night in and night out, as one of the best defenders, it’s something I’m going to be able to look back and tell my kids. When they look at their history book and read that Tim Duncan was one of the best who ever did it, I can sit back and say, ‘Man, we had some wars.'”
