SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tony Parker made his preseason debut and Brent Barry scored 16 points to guide the San Antonio Spurs to a 104-80 preseason victory over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.

Parker did not appear to have any rust in his first minutes on the court since Game Four of the NBA Finals. He finished with seven points, four rebounds and four assists in 17 minutes - all in the first half.

Barry hit seven of his 10 shots - including 2-of-4 from 3-point range - to propel the Spurs to their third consecutive win.

Tim Duncan added 13 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Spurs, who had six players finish in double figures.

Arron Afflalo, a rookie from UCLA, led the Pistons with 20 points on 6-of-8 shooting.

The Spurs played without Manu Ginobili, Bruce Bowen, Michael Finley and Jacque Vaughn, who were all in street clothes. They were also without their coach Gregg Popovich - who for the second straight game handed over the coaching duties to top assistant Mike Budenholzer.

Jason Maxiell had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Pistons, whose first and only lead of the game came after the first basket.

Chauncey Billups and Rasheed Wallace also suited up, but did not play for the Pistons, who are 3-4 in the preseason.
