Hamilton's 27 leads Pistons to OT win over Spurs


AUBURN HILLS, MI – Richard Hamilton scored 27 points and Rodney Stuckey added 20 to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 109-101 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in overtime on Sunday.

Manu Ginobili's layup tied the game at 93 with 27.5 seconds left, and the Pistons missed two game-winning shots at the end of regulation.

San Antonio started the extra period with a one-point lead because Hamilton was called for a technical foul during the break after regulation.

Ginobili made the free throw, but Detroit went on an 8-2 run after the tip and held on for the win.

Tim Duncan had 29 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, while Ginobili scored 21.

San Antonio played without Tony Parker, who sat out with a left hip injury.
