SAN ANTONIO (AP) – Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe each had a double-double and the Detroit Pistons scored four points in the final 11 seconds, rallying for an exciting 105-104 victory over the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night.
With just eight seconds left, Brandon Jennings collected an errant inbounds pass and drove the length of the court for the game-winning basket with 0.1 seconds remaining.READ MORE: Michigan Matters: Helping Young Folks & Cancer Patients
Drummond had 20 points and 17 rebounds and Monroe added 17 points and 11 rebounds as the Pistons pushed their winning streak to six games.
Drummond and Monroe dominated the inside, but it was Jennings who punctuated that effort for the Pistons (11-23).
San Antonio point guard Tony Parker played just 13 minutes in his return from a five-game absence due to a strained left hamstring.
STARTS AND STOPS
San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker started Tuesday night against the Detroit Pistons, his third attempt to get back on the court after straining his left hamstring.
Parker has missed 13 games total since initially suffering the injury Dec. 5 at Memphis. Parker has missed five straight games since aggravating the injury for a second time Dec. 25 against Oklahoma City.
“It’s been very frustrating,” Parker said. “It’s never happened to me before for that long, but it happens. Hopefully it’s behind me and the last treatment I did is hopefully the good one and now I can put it behind me and just get back to playing and playing good basketball.”
He initially attempted to return after three games, but returned to the sidelines.
Parker said he has to do some extra stretching and warming up to try to prevent the problem from coming back.
“The OKC game, it just didn’t feel right,” Parker said. “People who’ve had hammys, they told that can happen; you think you feel good, but it’s still there. So we tried to be patient with it. We’ll see what happens tonight.”
San Antonio has won two straight, but is 6-7 overall without Parker.
