After trailing by 3 at the half, Manu Ginobili and the Spurs had a solid third quarter and beat the Pistons 96-86 Friday night. Manu Ginobili sparked the Spurs in the third, as the home team outscored the Pistons by 9, including 3s by Patty and Kawhi which gave them a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
Pau Gasol had his best game as a Spur, leading in points and assists, with 21 and 6, while throwing in 9 boards. Andre Drummond led the Pistons with 20 points and 17 rebounds, at times dominating the Spurs inside.
The Spurs don’t get much rest, but get a chance for revenge against Houston Saturday night in a SEGABABA.
