AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- With interim coach John Loyer hoarsely shouting instructions, Brandon Jennings and the Detroit Pistons ran away from the San Antonio Spurs in the third quarter. Jennings finished with 21 points, and the Pistons beat San Antonio 109-100 on Monday night in Loyers first game at the helm. Detroit abruptly fired Maurice Cheeks on Sunday after only 50 games as coach, but although theyve been unimpressive for the most part this season, the Pistons have played better lately. The comfortable win over the Spurs was Detroits fifth in seven games. "I told them it was going to be an emotional day," Loyer said. "I told them I thought we can play, collectively, for longer periods of time better than we have." Rodney Stuckey scored 20 points for the Pistons, and Greg Monroe added 15 points and 10 rebounds. Marco Belinelli led the Spurs with 20 points. Detroit pulled even with Charlotte for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and the Pistons have shown flashes recently of the potential they thought theyd have this season. After signing Josh Smith and trading for Jennings in the off-season, Detroit is barely ahead of last seasons pace in terms of wins and losses. Jennings has been terrific lately, though. After scoring 35 points with 12 assists Saturday against Denver, he orchestrated another strong offensive effort Monday. San Antonio, meanwhile, turned the ball over eight times in the third quarter, when Detroit pushed its lead from 11 to 20. The Spurs finished with 19 turnovers, giving the Pistons all the help they would need. "We lost the game because we probably played the worst defence weve played all season, especially in the first half," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "We didnt bring it mentally or physically, and the Pistons did." Loyers sideline demeanour was quite a change from Cheeks more calm approach. At one point, Loyer came all the way across midcourt to give instructions as the Pistons were trying to hold on. "Theyre both two different coaches," Jennings said. "One is loud, the other one is kind of laid back. Theyre both great guys -- especially Cheeks. Hes like a father figure to me, so hes definitely going to be missed. But this is the NBA, so I know how that goes." The Pistons went on a 12-2 run in the third to take a 73-52 lead, then added a few more highlights later in that quarter. Smith threw down a one-handed dunk after a turnover by San Antonio, and Jennings made a layup after Detroits Andre Drummond blocked Aron Baynes shot emphatically off the glass. Jennings missed from the perimeter, then stole the ball near midcourt and went in for a three-point play to make it 84-62. "I told the guys today, just when we were in the locker room, Im so proud of them," Loyer said. "I only thought there was about a three-minute period where they showed more energy, more determination than us. You show determination, hustle for 45 of the 48 minutes, youre going to be pretty successful most nights." San Antonio is in the midst of a nine-game road swing. Belinelli was back after dealing with back spasms, but the Spurs were without Manu Ginobili (left hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (right hand). The Pistons went on a 15-4 run in the second quarter, capped by a 3-pointer by Jennings that put them ahead 57-45. "They played hard," San Antonios Danny Green said. "They wanted to play with some passion and they got loose balls." NOTES: The Pistons have won five straight at home after starting 7-15 at The Palace. ... After Cheeks firing, Popovich was asked about the key to his longevity with the Spurs. "I have information on everybody," he joked. "And Ive threatened everybody Ill let it out unless they keep me as long as I want to stay." ... Ginobili has joined the Spurs on this road trip, but hes not expected to play until after the All-Star break. Fake Yeezy Kaufen Deutschland . Didnt need any help this time.

Edwin Encarnacion led off the seventh with a homer to tie the game 3-3 and, with two out in the seventh, Munenori Kawasaki came through with the two-out single to score pinch-runner Steve Tolleson with what proved to be the winning run.DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies connected for five homers and not one by a player named CarGo or Tulo. "Cant count on (them) to do all the damage," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. They definitely showed that theres more to this team than sluggers Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. Charlie Blackmon hit two homers and Jorge De La Rosa threw five efficient innings, lifting the Colorado Rockies to an 8-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. Nolan Arenado, Wilin Rosario and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, whove won four of the last five. It was Blackmons first multihomer game of his career. "When were clicking as a team, and everybody is hitting the ball hard, up and down the order, its just that feeling of, Were going to get em," said Blackmon, who raised his average to .411. "Obviously, youd like to save some of your home runs for those really close games, but its also nice to take them when you can get them." De La Rosa (1-3) rediscovered his rhythm, allowing five hits and one run for his first victory of the season. The hard-throwing lefty tied a career high with 16 wins last season. He also was on the same page with Rosario all night, something that wasnt the case during the season opener in Miami when the battery mates couldnt get their signals straight. Backup catcher Jordan Pacheco has been behind the plate for De La Rosas last three starts. But Weiss didnt want to create a situation where De La Rosa had a personal catcher, so he went with Rosario, who actually had a calming influence on the sometimes excitable De La Rosa. In the third inning, Rosario sauntered out to the mound to briefly chat with De La Rosa after he loaded the bases with no outs. Rosario basically told him to relax and it worked as Buster Posey hit into a 6-4-3 double play -- bringing in a run -- and Michael Morse flew out to left. "Mixed my pitches really good with Wilin," De La Rosa said. "That was the key." Rosario also helped his pitcher out at the plate, too, lining a three-run homer..dddddddddddd Its his third homer of the season. De La Rosa walked off the mound in the fifth to applause after striking out Morse to escape a jam with runners on second and third. Tommy Kahnle took over and struck out five in two innings. Its just the sixth time a reliever has done that in Rockies history. Ryan Vogelsong (0-1) never got on track and was pulled after 1 1-3 innings, his shortest start with the Giants. He surrendered five runs and six hits, including three homers. "Im definitely not happy about it," Vogelsong said. "Its embarrassing really." Colorado pounced on the Giants in the first, with Arenado and Rosario hitting homers off Vogelsong, who threw 44 pitches in the inning. It didnt get any better in the second when Blackmon hit a solo homer off Vogelsong. The Giants pulled him four batters later. His replacement, reliever David Huff, bailed the Giants out of more trouble by getting an inning ending double play. Huff strained his left quadriceps muscle running out his first big league hit the next inning and was taken out of the game. Huff will get an MRI on Tuesday. "It doesnt look good," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "More than likely hes heading to the DL." The Rockies placed right fielder Michael Cuddyer on the disabled list Monday with a strained left hamstring. Blackmon slid over to right and Dickerson played centre. They were a combined 5 of 8 with three homers. "Its nice when the rest of the lineup is doing some damage," Weiss said. NOTES: OF Angel Pagan was ejected in the seventh for arguing a called third strike. ... Vogelsongs shortest start of his career was Sept. 24, 2004, when he was with Pittsburgh. He faced seven Cincinnati batters and didnt record an out. ... LHP Madison Bumgarner (2-1) will take the mound Tuesday. The Rockies counter with lefty Franklin Morales (1-1). ... 1B Justin Morneau was named the NL player of the week Monday after hitting .375. ... Arenado, who was moved up to the No. 2 spot in the order, extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games. ' ' '
