Manu to Marco, Boris and Timmy, Splitter, Green, CoJo and Mills. Even Kawhi and Ayres were there. Almost the full team was available on Wednesday night as the Spurs scored a ton of points to get a little revenge on the Pistons.

The Spurs looked a little rusty in their first game at the AT&T Center in four weeks. They shot just 36% from the field in the first quarter, but took a two point lead into the second. It was back and forth for some time before the Pistons took advantage of San Antonio's turnovers to take a six-point lead before the Spurs finished out the first half on a 10-0 run that saw six straight from Timmy and some solid defense from the team.

The Pistons defense didn't have much of an answer for the Spurs once the good guys found some rhythm and after the third Detroit was trailing by nine. The Spurs took care of the ball in the fourth and continued to score at will, which led to a relatively easy win for the good guys.

It's so great to have almost a full squad back on the court. Kawhi Leonard made his return from a broken hand and was rusty at first, but a triple and a transition alley-oop from CoJo got the quiet one going. Whi brought his defensive edge and his rebounding is something that the Spurs have sorely missed.

Good win from the good guys and let's hope it's the start of some consistency in the rotations.

Your Spurs improve to 41-16 for the season.
