PostSubject: Iverson, Wallace score 19 apiece to lead Detroit   Wed Dec 03, 2008 6:34 pm

SAN ANTONIO(AP) Rasheed Wallace showed he knows how to use a technical foul call as motivation.Wallace
made three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and scored 17 points in the
final 15 minutes after picking up a technical, and the Detroit Pistons
rallied from 10 points down to beat San Antonio 89-77 on Tuesday night
despite the return of Manu Ginobili to the Spurs' starting lineup."After
the tech, he kind of took matters in his own hands, started being a lot
more aggressive,'' Allen Iverson said. "It paid dividends for us.''But
scoring wasn't the first thing on Wallace's mind in the second half. He
was more concerned with how the game was being officiated - tipping
toward the Spurs, he thought."I knew what it was going to be out
there, and I didn't want our team to fall into that,'' Wallace said.
"We knew how it was going to be, especially going against the league
darlings.''Wallace finished with 19 points and Iverson also
scored 19 for Detroit (11-6), which has won two of three. Richard
Hamilton added 16 points and Tayshaun Prince scored 15.Rodney Stuckey came off the bench to score 10 points and had seven assists.The
Spurs (9-Cool have dropped two straight after winning four in a row. They
were led by Tim Duncan, who had 23 points, but just one point in the
fourth quarter.He wasn't the only one to have a letdown in the
fourth quarter. San Antonio went 5-of-15 from the floor, and the
Pistons converted the Spurs' six turnovers into 10 points."The
most disturbing thing is that we were very soft,'' Spurs coach Gregg
Popovich said. "I think Detroit intimidated us. It was really sad to
watch in that respect. I thought we totally folded to their aggressive
play.''Ginobili scored 13 in his first start of the season after
missing the first 12 games because of offseason ankle surgery. But he
was 4-of-11 from the floor - 1-of-4 in the fourth quarter."Ginobili is tough to guard,'' Pistons coach Michael Curry said. "We played him tough and gave ourselves a chance to win.''The
Pistons, who trailed by 10 twice in the third quarter, finally pulled
ahead when Wallace hit a 3-pointer almost four minutes into the fourth
quarter. Wallace hit two more 3s in the fourth quarter as Detroit
outscored the Spurs 28-14."We should have played that hard from
the gate,'' Wallace said. "We wouldn't have been in that deficit. We're
a resilient young team. Guys knuckled up in that second half.''Iverson trimmed the Spurs' 50-40 lead early in the third quarter down to 52-50 on a layup with 7:18 remaining in the period.But
San Antonio scored eight straight, capped by Bruce Bowen's 3-pointer
with 3:14 left in the third, to go ahead 60-50 with 3:14 left in the
third quarter.Iverson's 3-pointer cut the Spurs' lead to one
point, but Ginobili quickly hit his own 3-pointer. San Antonio clung to
a 63-61 lead heading into the fourth quarter.After starting the
game 4-of-5 for a two-point lead, the Pistons went 1-of-7 during the
next 5:22 and the Spurs held their largest lead of the first quarter at
16-10.Iverson, who played the entire opening quarter for seven
points on 3-of-5 shooting, got Detroit back on track with a 3-pointer
to cut San Antonio's lead to 16-13 with 3:42 to go. But the Spurs led
by five heading into the second quarter.San Antonio led by as
many as seven points in the second quarter before the Pistons scored 12
consecutive points during a stretch of 3:28. The run consisted of a
pair of free throws and five straight layups. The last two were slam
dunks by Jason Maxiell that gave Detroit a 31-26 lead with 7:10 left in
the first half.The Pistons shot 50 percent from the floor and
were 6-of-11 from the 3-point line compared to the Spurs' 6-of-24. San
Antonio shot 39 percent from the floor.Notes: Hamilton tied John
Long (1978-91) for eighth place on the Pistons' all-time scoring list.
... Matt Bonner started his fourth game of the season for the Spurs on
Tuesday, but it was his first since the fourth game of the season on
Nov. 5. ... The Pistons are 5-2 against the Spurs since losing the '05
Finals in a seven-game series.
