San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Jennings raced down the court following a San Antonio turnover and made the game-winning shot with 0.1 seconds left, lifting the red-hot Detroit Pistons over the Spurs, 105-104, on Tuesday.
The Spurs left the door open after going 4-of-8 from the foul line over the final 1:52. The Pistons pulled within 104-103 on a pair of Jodie Meeks free throws with eight seconds remaining. Following a 20-second timeout, Tim Duncan threw the ensuing inbound pass behind Patty Mills and Jennings made a bank shot at the other end.
Jennings ended with 13 points and seven assists for the Pistons, who have won six in a row. Andre Drummond had 20 points and 17 rebounds, D.J. Augustin tallied 19 points and Greg Monroe contributed 17 points and 11 boards.
"Just a great team win. We showed a lot of resiliency," said Monroe. "Everybody stayed the course. We stuck together, came in and beat a really good team."
Jeff Ayres finished with 16 points for the Spurs, who had a brief two-game winning streak snapped. Duncan and Danny Green donated 15 and 13 points, respectively.
San Antonio point guard Tony Parker played just 13 minutes in his return from a five-game absence due to a hamstring injury. He ended with three points.
"He is healthy. He wanted to play, but I was being conservative," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "He had 13 minutes and that is good after resting as long as he did. I wanted to make sure he didn't reinjure it."
The Spurs led 37-20 after one quarter and held a 54-36 edge late in the second. However, Detroit ended the first half on a 13-4 run to get within 58-49.
The Pistons then scored the first six points of the second half to make it a three-point game. Detroit outscored San Antonio by a 33-19 margin in the third quarter to grab an 82-77 lead.
Detroit went ahead 101-100 on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's running bank shot with 2:12 to play. Boris Diaw had a chance to put the Spurs in front, but missed two free throws.
Caldwell-Pope was called for an offensive foul after Jennings missed a layup. The Spurs, though, struggled from the line and could only build a 104-101 lead with 10.8 seconds left.
The final frame featured 10 lead changes and four ties.
