Auburn Hills, Michigan:

Tim Duncan had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a spirited Detroit rally to win 99-95 on Tuesday for their eighth consecutive victory.

Detroit trailed by 15 in the fourth quarter but came back to take the lead behind Ben Wallace, the veteran big man who set a record by appearing in his 1,055th career game - the most for an undrafted player since the NBA-ABA merger.

The Spurs finally took the lead for good on Tony Parker's driving layup with 1:13 remaining.

Parker also made a floater with 27.2 seconds to play to give San Antonio a 95-92 lead, and Ben Gordon couldn't convert from the left corner for the Pistons.
