Christian Wood scored a career-high 28 points as the Detroit Pistons routed the San Antonio Spurs 132-98 on Sunday.

Luke Kennard added 20 points for the Pistons, who had lost eight of 10. Detroit had seven players score in double figures, including four reserves.

The Spurs, who lost for the 11th time in 13 games, got 20 points from DeMar DeRozan. San Antonio shot 41% from the floor, including 27% on 3-pointers.

Here is a small sample of what the teams said after the game:


Gregg Popovich: "Disappointing performance and Detroit gets credit, they outplayed us in every facet of the game."

Lonnie Walker IV: “Defense mainly, first and foremost we got to get better defensively as a team and just bring energy."


Dwane Casey: "I thought we came out and were ready, especially the defense - I thought our defense was solid. When you shoot the ball, you feel good about a lot of things."

Blake Griffin: “We obviously played a lot better, probably one of our more complete games."

The Spurs will next face the Rockets on 12/3 in San Antonio.
