Pistons don't surrender, force Game 7

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Larry Brown and Gregg Popovich met at midcourt as the final buzzer sounded to exchange handshakes and a hug. Never before has there been an NBA Finals moment quite like it, and another rarity - a Game 7 for the championship - will unfold next.

Resilient Pistons pull even
Detroit ended its 10-game losing streak in San Antonio when it mattered most, defeating the Spurs 95-86 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Ben Wallace and other Pistons spoke to FSN about the keys to victory.

The Detroit Pistons weren't ready to concede their title Tuesday night, and the San Antonio Spurs weren't quite good enough to earn it.
Behind the scoring of guards Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton and several clutch plays from foul-plagued Rasheed Wallace down the stretch, the defending champions displayed the resiliency they've become known for and defeated San Antonio 95-86 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

For the first time since 1994, the finals are going to a winner-take-all game.

"Not today. Not tonight. Not today. Not tonight," Billups said as he walked to the locker room after the game.

"This is how we do it," Lindsey Hunter sang as he exited the shower.

Billups made five of the Pistons' eight 3-pointers as Detroit matched its long-range output from the first five games combined. Billups scored 21, Hamilton had 23 and Wallace 16 for the Pistons, who played at their peak despite being on the brink of elimination - just as they did in the Eastern Conference finals against Miami earlier this month.
