Aldridge Leads Spurs to Home Win over Pistons

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Forward LaMarcus Aldridge led the scoring for the San Antonio Spurs with 24 points to beat the Detroit Pistons 105-93 at AT&T Center on Wednesday, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Aldridge also had five rebounds and made three assists and two blocks in 39 minutes of play.

The Spurs (34-29), who returned home after a 25-day road trip, picked up their third win in the last 10 games to hold on to the second spot in the southwest division.

The team is also placed seventh in the Western Conference.

The Spurs, who took a lead by the end of the first quarter that they never relinquished, limited the Pistons to under 100 points thanks to a strong defensive performance.

“When we play good defense, we have a chance to win games,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “When we were at our best this year, for that one run, we were first, second or third in every category, defensive efficiency and all that sort of thing. Then all of a sudden it went bye-bye. This is who we have to be.”

DeMar DeRozan had a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds and also made eight assists and two steals.

Reserve Marco Belinelli came off the bench to add 17 points for San Antonio, while Derrick White had 15 points, six rebounds and four assists with two steals and one block.

“We communicated well today,” Aldridge said after the game.

“It’s always different communicating on the road and at home,” he added, a sentiment echoed by DeRozan, who said “it’s always great to get home.”

“We can’t get down on ourselves when we make mistakes offensively (and) defensively. We’ve got to just go out there and focus, play hard, playing together and communicating. When we do those things, something always tends to go our way,” DeRozan added.

Reggie Jackson led the scoring with 22 points for the Pistons (29-31), who are placed seventh in the Eastern Conference.

Blake Griffin added 17 and Wayne Ellington another 11 for Detroit.
