(SAN ANTONIO) - The San Antonio Spurs fought through another injury and the second game of a back-to-back to beat the Detroit Pistons and earn some rare praise from coach Gregg Popovich. LaMarcus Aldridge had 17 points and 10 rebounds and San Antonio rallied to beat Detroit 96-93 on Monday night. Reggie Jackson had 27 points for Detroit, which led by as many as nine points before dropping its third straight. Jackson was held to seven points in the second half on 3-for-10 shooting as San Antonio clamped down defensively to win after falling to Oklahoma City on Sunday. The Spurs were without Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Anderson, who has started in place of Leonard all season. Anderson will miss two to three weeks after spraining his left knee against the Thunder. Rudy Gay, making his first start in place of Anderson, had 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. Detroit trailed 94-93 when Gay failed to hit the rim on a 3-point attempt as the shot clock expired with 5.2 seconds remaining, but the Pistons' Tobias Harris committed a foul prior to the violation. Aldridge made two free throws to give the Spurs a 96-93 lead. Gay blocked Harris' 3-point attempt at the buzzer to preserve the victory. Pau Gasol added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who had seven players score in double figures and had three with double-doubles. San Antonio had 30 assists and a 51-42 edge in rebounding to win for the fifth time in six games. Andre Drummond finished with 11 points and 15 rebounds for his 17th double-double in Detroit's 23 games this season.
