AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- After a pair of suffocating defensive performances, the Detroit Pistons have the San Antonio Spurs gasping for points.

The defending champions look to win the three middle home games in the NBA Finals for the second straight year when they face the Spurs in Game Five on Sunday.

Thanks to a disruptive defense and balanced scoring attack, the Pistons evened the series at two games apiece with a 102-71 rout of San Antonio on Thursday.

Chauncey Billups - the Most Valuable Player of last year's Finals - and Lindsey Hunter scored 17 points apiece to lead seven players in double figures. Ben Wallace scored 11 and grabbed 13 rebounds for Detroit.

The Pistons committed just four turnovers while forcing 18, had a 13-1 edge in steals and limited the Spurs to 37 percent (26-of-70) shooting from the floor. San Antonio was held to the fifth-lowest point total in Finals history.

Although he scored 16 points and had 16 rebounds for the Spurs, Tim Duncan made just 5-of-17 shots and could not seem to find his normal offensive rhythm. He made just 10-of-32 shots in the last two games here.

Manu Ginobili opened the series with 53 points in the first two games but has managed just 19 in the next two. He scored 12 points on Thursday after being held to a playoff-low seven in Game Three.

The series may be deadlocked but all four games have been lopsided. The average victory margin is 18 points and each contest has been decided by at least 15 points.

Detroit's Larry Brown needs one victory to join Phil Jackson and Pat Riley as the only coaches with 100 career playoff wins. He is tied with Hall of Famer Red Auerbach with 99.

The series moves back to San Antonio for Game Six on Tuesday, where the Pistons have not won since 1997.
