Knee injury expected to sideline Spurs' Anderson two to three weeks

Battered Spurs lose Kyle Anderson to likely MCL strain Pistons lose again
Kenny Thornton | 05 December, 2017, 14:51

The Detroit Pistons are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.7 percent from the free throw line. Danny Green swatted an inside attempt by 6-foot-11 Andre Drummond with 28.9 seconds left and the Spurs clinging to a 94-91 advantage. Aldridge then sank two free throws with 5.2 seconds to go, increasing San Antonio's lead to 96-93. The Pistons led by as many points in the third quarter. "I feel good", Leonard said.

In the next play, Rudy Gay blocked the three-point shot attempt by Tobias Harris giving the Spurs their 16th win of the season and handing the Pistons their 9th loss. Gay and Gasol both had 10 rebounds. His final points came on a three-point play that gave San Antonio an 88-86 lead with 3:39 remaining. "We'll see what they say".

But the Pistons never got the lead to double digits because the Spurs used a couple of small runs to trim down the lead despite their star points guard, Reggie Jackson, scoring 20 of his 27 points in the first half. Drummond added 15 rebounds and Johnson pulled down 10 for Detroit. Jon Leuer missed the game with a sprained left ankle.

The Spurs had no answer for Jackson in the first half. The Pistons slipped to 14-9.

Another key takeaway from the Spurs this game was their three-point shooting which they made 14 three's.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster knocks Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict out
The Steelers went on to tie the game on that drive with a touchdown pass to Brown and eventually won with a walk-off field goal. It's worth noting that Smith-Schuster did apologize on Twitter after the game, saying "he didn't mean to hurt" Burfict.

In the meantime, San Antonio seems to be doing okay without him. The game was nip-and-tuck the rest of the way.

The Detroit Pistons look for a spark of consistency here after splitting their last 10 games. Monday will be the vet's first start of the season after averaging 22.0 minutes per game off the bench this season. Leonard said he is working in five-on-five drills and is progressing but provided little insight how the injury occurred or into the process he is using to get back to the court.

San Antonio is 2-2-1 ATS with 3 unders and 2 overs over their last five games.

The Spurs are listing forward Rudy Gay (sore right heel) and big man Joffrey Lauvergne (right middle finger) as probable.
