Spurs outlast Wallace, Pistons 99-95

AUBURN HILLS, MI (AP) -

Tim Duncan had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a spirited Detroit rally to beat the Pistons 99-95 on Tuesday night for their eighth
consecutive victory.

Detroit trailed by 15 in the fourth quarter but came back to take the lead behind Ben Wallace, the veteran big man who set a record by appearing in his 1,055th career game -- the most for an
undrafted player since the NBA-ABA merger.

The Spurs finally took the lead for good on Tony Parker's driving layup with 1:13 remaining.

Parker also made a floater with 27.2 seconds to play to give San Antonio a 95-92 lead, and Ben Gordon couldn't convert from the left corner for the Pistons.
