Spurs fumble ball, Brandon Jennings hits game winner to lift Pistons to victory (VIDEO)

Detroit Pistons v San Antonio Spurs

That is about the most un-Spurs thing you may ever see, but they have done it a few times this season.

San Antonio was up by one with 8 seconds left, all they needed to do was inbound the ball, hit their free throws and they would beat a rejuvenated and feisty Pistons team.

But Tim Duncan’s pass was slightly behind Patty Mills, who still should have caught it but fumbled it, and that gave the Pistons the final shot. Brandon Jennings — who had 13 points on the night but on 18 shots and was just 2-of-9 inside eight feet — hit the banked in runner as time expired to give the Pistons the win.

That is six straight wins for the Pistons since Josh Smith was waived.
