(NBA) Pistons give interim coach first win over Spurs
(02-11 16:19)

Brandon Jennings scored 21 points and the Detroit Pistons beat the San Antonio Spurs 109-100 in John Loyer's first game as interim coach.
Detroit abruptly fired Maurice Cheeks on Sunday after only 50 games as coach, but although they've been unimpressive for the most part this season, the Pistons have played better lately. The comfortable win over the Spurs was Detroit's fifth in seven games.
Rodney Stuckey scored 20 points for the Pistons, and Greg Monroe added 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Marco Belinelli led the Spurs with 20 points.
Detroit pulled even with Charlotte for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. --AP
