OKC Thunder beat Detroit Pistons 105-94 to improve to 4-2 on year


Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka each scored 25 points as the Oklahoma City Thunder won at home Friday night 105-94 vs. the Detroit Pistons.

The Thunder improve to 4-2 on the year while the Pistons remain winless at 0-6. It was a rather easy win for OKC who shot 53.5 percent from the field in the game while holding Detroit to 41.4 percent.

Ibaka’s 25 was a career-high as he continues to put it together offensively. Ibaka went 9-for-13 from the field and also had seven rebounds and three blocks.

Russell Westbrook had another off night shooting the rock at just 3-for-10 in the game but he played good defense and handed out six assists.

Westbrook’s backup Erick Maynor had his best scoring game of the year with 13 off the bench. Maynor made all three of his 3-point attempts and dished out three assists as well.

Kevin Martin continues his impressive streak of at least 15 points or more off the bench in each game this season. He finished with 16 tonight on 5-of-14 shooting from the field and he was 2-of-9 from three.

The Thunder cut down on the turnovers somewhat being back at home and continued to rack up the assists. Kendrick Perkins led the team with six assists on the night and also added nine points.

The Pistons kept the game from reaching blowout territory by working hard on the offensive glass for 16 boards. No one was consistent enough for them on offense to establish anything worthy of challenging the Thunder.

The most impressive Piston was rookie Andre Drummond who scored 22 points off the bench and went 8-of-10 from the field.

The Thunder will be off tomorrow night before hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday night at 7 p.m. EST.
