been blessed, Ive been heal
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Titans Jerseys China . -- Rodney Stuckey pulled the Pistons out of trouble. Stuckey came off the bench to score 26 points and the Detroit reserves helped wipe out a 19-point deficit as the Pistons topped Boston 115-111. Stuckeys free throws with 57 seconds left broke a 111-all tie and gave Detroit the lead for good. "They got us back in with their energy," coach John Loyer said of his reserves, who helped the team end a two-game skid. The Pistons trailed by 19 points in third quarter and were down 95-85 at the start of the fourth before embarking on a 15-4 run that gave them their first lead since early in the game. The teams traded the lead several times before Stuckeys free throws. Bostons Jerryd Bayless tried for a go-ahead shot in the final seconds but his 3-point try rimmed out. Greg Monroe had 21 points and Brandon Jennings added 20 for Detroit, which also got 19 and 20 rebounds from Andre Drummond, who tied the game at 111 on a tip with 1:52 to play. Thirteen of his caroms were on the offensive glass, giving him 402 this season and making him the most prolific single-season offensive rebounder since 2000. "I pride myself on getting offensive rebounds," Drummond said. "Thats how I get my points." Jerryd Bayless had 25 points and Jeff Green added 22 for the Celtics, who lost their eighth straight and have dropped 12 in a row on the road. Bostons lead was 82-63 midway through the third before Detroit rallied produced a handful of runs to keep the lead from getting past 20. Pistons reserve Jonas Jerebko had consecutive 3-pointers midway through the final period to give the Pistons a lead. Rookie Peyton Siva had all five of his career-best five assists in the fourth. "The reason we won the game was Peyton Siva," Drummond said. "His energy in the fourth quarter was tremendous. He ran the show. The Celtics looked sharp from the field in the first three quarters but had several droughts in the final period. They had just six field goals and 16 points in the fourth and did not score in the final three minutes. "I thought we let off the gas defensively a couple of times and all of a sudden, instead of a 19-point game, its a 13- or 12-point game," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "We have seen that time and again in this league that those leads go quick." Bostons Jared Sullinger, one of the worst 3-point shooters (.253 per cent) in the league, made his first four tries from behind the arc. He scored 22 points and had 10 rebounds Saturday night in place of the injured Kris Humphries. Rookie Phil Pressey added a career-best 11 assists. Boston guard Rajon Rondo, who had a triple double in Fridays loss to Philadelphia, did not play Saturday. Hes missed the second game of back-to-back nights since he returned to the roster in January.

The Feb. 15 game is at Madison Square Garden in New York, which was the site of Duncans inaugural All-Star appearance in 1998.Its an honour to be there, Im happy to go, Duncan said. Would I have loved a couple of days off? Maybe, but it is what it is. It will be fun. My kids will love the experience and they will enjoy it.Perhaps not as much as Duncan, though.Duncan is stoic on the floor and in dealing with the media, but he is extremely mischievous behind the scenes. He loves playing practical jokes on teammates and teasing them, comparing his wicked sense of humour to that of Will Hunting in Good Will Hunting.Get ready for that, Steve Kerr. Kerr is coaching the West after leading Golden State to the leagues best record in his first season with the Warriors. Kerr and Duncan were teammates in San Antonio for four seasons, winning NBA championships in 1999 and 2003.Thats the best part, Duncan said, smiling. Im just going to give him all kinds of (ribbing) the entire time, just make his life hell the entire game, in every huddle, in every play. Im going to work him the whole time.If dealing with Duncans shenanigans isnt enough for Kerr, there is also the ominous threat of displeasing his mentor, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich.Popovich was asked if he requested Kerr limit Duncans minutes.If he plays him at all, Im never speaking to himm again, Popovich said with a chuckle. Cheap Titans Jerseys. The caution is understandable. The Spurs have struggled to find the consistency they showed last June in steamrolling the Miami Heat in five games to win their fifth NBA title. They have been plagued by injuries to key players including Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard. The one player to escape injury thus far is also its oldest.Ive been blessed, Ive been healthy, Duncan said. The last couple of years Ive made it through an entire season healthy. My role has changed over the years. Im just trying to be a positive on the floor thats all I want to be and be consistent at what I have to do for the team as possible.Duncan is averaging 14.7 points and 10.1 rebounds and has 22 double-doubles in 42 games. He is also averaging 30.3 minutes, third most on the team.Hes having a good year, Popovich said. Weve been a little up and down, but hes been really steady. Hes carried us to this point with his consistency, which is whats really impressive. Im really thankful to the coaches for seeing that and putting him on (the All-Star team).After Thursdays games, San Antonio was just 2 1/2 games behind the Portland Trail Blazers for third place in the West. The Spurs have won three straight and eight of 11 and have three straight home games before their annual nearly monthlong rodeo road trip.Its a good stretch, a really good stretch, Duncan said. Kind of needed right now. Weve had kind of grind this first half of the season. I know a lot of the guys are looking forward to it, but were not there yet and were not looking forward to that just yet. Weve got these games to finish out before the break and well do just that.
