The San Antonio Spurs (46-14) will look to beat the Detroit Pistons (23-38) tonight in San Antonio but will have to do it without all-star guard Tony Parker. Parker injured his left ankle in the Spurs recent win over the Kings and will be sidelined for about four weeks. The Spurs and Pistons will meet for the final time this season with the Spurs lost to the Pistons 119-109 in Detroit. Parker paced the Spurs with 31 points and 8 assists. Greg Monroe led the Pistons with 26 points, 16 rebounds and 5 assists. The Spurs are coming off a lopsided win over the Kings 130-102 in San Antonio. Tim Duncan led the team with 13 points, and 10 rebounds. The Pistons are coming off a 95-100 loss to the Hornets in New Orleans. Monroe finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Pistons. And as the Spurs look to keep their winning ways without Parker, here re five things to watch for in tonight's games: • The Spurs are 3-1 without Parker this season. The only loss is to the Heat. • The Pistons have lost two consecutive games in San Antonio. • In their 23 wins, Pistons opponents are averaging 90.7 points per game. Twelve of 23 opponents in wins were held to 90 points or less. • The Detroit Pistons rank third in the NBA in points in the paint per game with 46.3. • Since the addition of Jose Calderon, the Pistons have increased their assists per game average from 20.4 to 23.3.
