Spurs hold halftime lead in Game 6

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) – Manu Ginobili has 12 points and eight
rebounds through just 24 minutes of action, as the San Antonio Spurs hold a
47-46 edge over the defending champion Detroit Pistons in Game 6 of the NBA
Finals.

Tony Parker has 10 points and Tim Duncan has only nine points and six boards
for the Spurs, who are just two quarters away from winning the NBA title for
the second time in three years.

Chauncey Billups has 11 points and Richard Hamilton has 10 for the Pistons,
who need to win tonight to force a deciding Game 7.

The Pistons held a 35-29 lead, the largest by either team throughout the first
half, 3:15 into the second quarter thanks to a Rasheed Wallace three-pointer.
However, the Spurs scored the next seven points to regain the lead and managed
to hold on to that same margin heading into the break.
