Pistons Earn Big Win Over Champion Spurs

The NBA's greatest rivalry intensified on Christmas Day, as the Detroit Pistons got a huge win over last season's NBA champion San Antonio Spurs.

In the Finals the Pistons lost Game 7 in San Antonio and All Star guard Manu Ginobli was a big reason the Spurs were able to get the necessary four wins. This time around Ginobli was out with an injury and the Spurs showed how much they needed his scoring, ball handling and playmaking.

The final score, 85-70, was misleading as the Spurs hung close until the fourth quarter, when the Pistons offense hit high gear and Detroit finished with an easy win.

Detroit is 22-3 heading into tonight's game against the Toronto Raptors.
