Parker, Mason help Spurs past Pistons

By AP

SAN ANTONIO – Tony Parker and Roger Mason Jr. keyed a decisive run early in the fourth quarter Wednesday night as the San Antonio Spurs sent the Detroit Pistons to their 11th consecutive loss, 112-92.

Parker's three-point play a little more than two minutes into the final period was followed by consecutive baskets by Mason as part of an 11-0 stretch after the Pistons tied the score at 77 on Ben Gordon's driving layup to open the quarter.

Gordon missed a free-throw attempt that would have given the Pistons their first lead since the first period, and the Spurs outscored Detroit 35-15 the rest of the way.

Parker led San Antonio with 23 points.
