Pistons blow out Spurs 132-98
(DETROIT) – Christian Wood came off the bench to score a career-high 28 points in 22 minutes as Detroit routed the San Antonio Spurs 132-98. After going undrafted in 2015, Wood played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Charlotte Hornets and New Orleans Pelicans before the Pistons claimed him on waivers in July. Along with his scoring, defense and rebounding, Wood's performance had another benefit for the Pistons. He scored 19 points in the game's final 14:59, giving Andre Drummond a lengthy rest with games coming on Tuesday and Wednesday. Drummond played 26 minutes finishing with 9 points and 16 rebounds while Blake Griffin played just 22 as the Pistons got 75 bench points on 67% shooting. Luke Kennard added 20 points for the Pistons, who had lost eight of 10. Detroit had seven players score in double figures, including four reserves. The Spurs, who lost for the 11th time in 13 games, got 20 points from DeMar DeRozan. San Antonio shot 41% from the floor, including 27% on 3-pointers. Drummond fell one point short of the 377th double-double of his career, the most of any NBA player since he joined the league in the 2012-2013 season.
