Spurs return after long Rodeo Road Trip to host Pistons

Spurs-Pistons tip off at 7 p.m. from AT&T Center

SAN ANTONIO – In the words of folk singer John Denver, "Hey it's good to be back home again."

For the first time in nearly a month, the San Antonio Spurs will be playing a game in the AT&T Center when they host the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night.  

The last time the Spurs were at home was Feb. 6 when they hosted the Los Angeles Lakers, also Kobe Bryant's last game in San Antonio.  

While the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo was riding and bucking, the Spurs went 7-1 on the rodeo road trip and that is no bull.  

"It's a great road trip and now we have to keep it going at home," Parker said. 

The Spurs will try and pickup where they left off before leaving town, winning at home.

The Spurs are looking for their 29th straight home win. "It is going to be a very physical game," said Parker.  

What's been amazing about the Spurs play this season is they can clinch a playoff spot in the Western Conference with a win against Detroit, and it is only March 2.

It would be the Spurs 19th straight playoff appearance, tying the Boston Celtics for the fourth-longest run in NBA history.  

It would also be the fewest games, 60, the Spurs have played during a season to clinch a playoff spot.

They can also clinch a spot if the Rockets lose to New Orleans. 

Wednesday night will also be the debut of the newest Spur Andre Miller in silver and black wearing No. 24.
