Spurs rout Pistons 114-75 without injured Parker
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Manu Ginobili scored 17 points, Tim Duncan had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs routed the Detroit Pistons 114-75 on Sunday night despite playing without All-Star point guard Tony Parker.
Danny Green added 16 points and Kawhi Leonard had 14 for the Spurs (47-14), who rolled to their most lopsided victory of the season in their first game since Parker was injured.
Greg Monroe scored 16 points and Jose Calderon 14 for Detroit, which has lost five of six.
The Spurs had 35 assists on 45 field goals. Making his first start of the season, Cory Joseph had eight points, four assists and one turnover in place of Parker, who sprained his left ankle in Friday's win over Sacramento and is expected to miss about a month.
