Spurs clinch postseason berth with 29th straight home win

Spurs clinch postseason berth with 29th straight home win

The Pistons will hope to add the San Antonio Spurs to their resume on the road as well.

The San Antonio stars combined for 50 points in the Spurs' 97-81 victory over Detroit Wednesday night.

Addressing the media for the first time since suffering his worst injury in his career before San Antonio took on the Pistons, Ginobili stated he was in a lot of pain and did not care about playing.

Raptors 104, Jazz 94 - Kyle Lowry scored 32 points, DeMar DeRozan added 31 and Toronto beat Utah for a club-record 11th straight home win.

Aldridge will try to stay hot after totaling 49 points and 26 rebounds in his last two games. The Cavaliers was an eight-point win on the road while the Raptors was a 13 point win.

"It was very good", Popovich remarked in his succinct manner. That ball movement ended at halftime as the Pistons had just five assists in a 30-point second half. It's pretty special if you can do that. "We played a better second half for sure".

"Not really", Aldridge said. "It's not about (the milestones)".

"I don't think anything can happen", he said. "We allowed 30 points in the second half".

The Spurs own the second-longest active playoff streak among the four major professional sports, trailing only the NHL's Detroit Red Wings (24). Andre Drummond took a game-high 14 rebounds for the Pistons.

The Detroit Pistons look to build on their solid four-game winning streak.

The big question: Will San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich rest some of his key players in this spot or let them all play against the Pelicans? The duo led the Spurs with 27 and 23 points, respectively. Reggie Jackson is averaging 19.4 points and 6.2 assists while Tobias Harris is averaging 17 points and 5.5 rebounds.

The third quarter belonged to the Spurs, who outscored Detroit 27-14 and pushed their lead to 79-65.

Veteran PG Andre Miller received a rousing ovation when he entered the game with a minute remaining in the third quarter for San Antonio.

"They were playing well, so we kept giving them the ball", Spurs point guard Tony Parker said.
