Spurs are better offensively, scoring 112.1 ppg to Pistons’ 107.2, while Pistons are better defensively, allowing 108.1 ppg to Spurs’ 111.6. Spurs have better percentages both in field goals (47.6% to 44%) and in 3-pointers (40.1% to 34.2%). They are better in turnovers committed (12.1 to 13.7) and in dimes made (24.5 to 22.4), while Pistons are better in boards grabbed (45.4 to 44.3).
