Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Derek Anderson scored 25 points and Tim Duncan added 20, lifting the San Antonio Spurs to their season-high fifth straight win, a 111-90 rout of the slumping Detroit Pistons.

Anderson and Duncan fueled the decisive second-quarter run, combined for 16 points during the 23-6 burst.

Trailing 36-24 after Jerry Stackhouse's 18-footer opened the second-quarter scoring, the Spurs found their offensive groove. Danny Ferry buried an 18-footer, Terry Porter made a free throw, Anderson connected from 18 feet and Duncan converted a three-point play and sank a seven-foot hook shot to pull the Spurs within 36-34.

"When we went down by 11 or 12 points, I was really pleased we continued to execute what we practice, both defensively and offensively," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "We were fortunate to make shots and get back in the game. I thought that was the best part of the game for us, to maintain composure when Detroit came out real tough, real physical and real aggressive."

Stackhouse responded with a 20-footer, but David Robinson made two free throws as the Spurs reeled off 13 of the next 17 points to take a 47-42 lead with 2:43 left in the first half.

Duncan, who also grabbed 11 rebounds, had 10 points during the run and Anderson added six. San Antonio has won five in a row for the first time since March and moved one game ahead of second-place Dallas in the Midwest Division.

"I wouldn't call it a streak," Robinson said. "We've played some great basketball. But now we're starting to put things together. I see signs that we're coming together. Our next two games (at Philadelphia and New York) are important. We'll know a lot more then. But I wouldn't call it a streak yet."

"We've played better in stretches. I think the best thing about this is, we've been winning road games," added Duncan after the Spurs won their third straight game away from home.

Stackhouse scored 35 points for the Pistons, who have lost four in a row and allowed at least 100 points for the seventh straight game.

"I thought we came out with a lot of energy," Stackhouse said. "I tried to set the tone from the start, but we just lost it. We have to keep playing. It doesn't get any easier ... but maybe we can shock the world. We have to find five guys to come out with a lot of energy, but even more important, to find guys coming off the bench to sustain what we started."

Detroit coach George Irvine was ejected in the third quarter for arguing with officials and his team fell behind 72-56 after Anderson knocked down a pair of technical free throws.

"I thought we played the first quarter great," Irvine said. "Our defense was terrific and got us running. We shot the ball well. But it really fell off when we had to go to the bench. We lost a lot of intensity."

San Antonio had lost four straight in Detroit since March 27, 1995.

The Pistons came out on fire, taking a 34-24 lead behind 15 first-quarter points from Stackhouse. Antonio Daniels beat the halftime buzzer with a 27-footer as the Spurs took a 54-50 lead into the locker room.

"We didn't start out well executing the offense," Robinson said. "It was great once we settled down and started moving it around. We don't give up 35 points to anybody in the first quarter."

In the second half, San Antonio put on the clamps defensively, limiting Detroit to 16 points in the third quarter while opening an 80-66 cushion.

"In the second half, we did a better job of defending them and didn't give up any offensive rebounds," Duncan said. "That was the key. Derek Anderson was great tonight. He's a big part of our offense. We've been getting him the ball and he's getting it done."

Porter hit a 3-pointer, rookie Derrick Dial made a five-foot hook and Duncan knocked down a pair of free throws to open a 93-71 lead with 7:58 to play.

The Pistons did not seriously challenge thereafter, slipping to 8-9 at home.

Robinson scored 18 points, Dial a season-high 15 and Ferry added 11 off the bench for the Spurs, who shot 53 percent (39-of-74) and improved to 8-9 away from the Alamodome. San Antonio held a 40-34 rebounding advantage and forced 17 turnovers.

Joe Smith scored 12 points, Chucky Atkins 11 and Jud Buechler and Ben Wallace added 10 apiece for the Pistons, who shot 46 percent (36-of-79).

"It's all up to us," Wallace said. "You can't coach intensity, you can't coach energy. We have to go out and compete. That's what it's going to take."
