Pistons rally in final seconds to beat Spurs

SAN ANTONIO — 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.

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.
