The 4-13 Pistons are on the road to take on the 13-3 Thunder in Oklahoma City. The Thunder, who are currently atop the West will go for their sixth consecutive victory against Detroit, while the Pistons try to end a 14-game road losing streak to West opponents.

  • The good: Again, more learning on the job for Brandon Knight. No Gordon or Bynum means you may see a lot more of “The Walkman.”
  • The bad: Gordon, Bynum and CV31 did not make the trip to OKC. Since relocating from Seattle in 2008, Oklahoma City has won all three times the Pistons have come to town.
  • Who to watch: Kevin Durant, Westbrook on the O and Perkins and Serge Ibaka on the defensive end.  Look for Rodney Stuckey to try to do what he did against Portland.
  • The unknown: The Thunder are scoring 103.1 points per game, while Detroit has yet to break the 100 mark this season.  Will they do it tonight?

    When OKC plays Westbrook and Harden at the same time, whom should Stuckey guard and which one should Knight guard?

    Great job Dumars you officially have the worst team in the league, hope your happy about bring down a once great team to nothing. This team is down right awful.

    I bet this loss was the ugliest.

  5. edt says:

    could have been a 50 point loss, 110 to 60

    but they felt sorry for us after the first quarter and kept the score close, and by close I mean 20 points down

  6. Drew says:

    It all fell apart after Stuckey’s miraculous 3 was waived off. Imagine going into a timeout with 13 points and coming out with 10. Demoralizing.

    Look at the Thunder roster and you can see why they are so good.
    They are filled with a bunch of previous lottery picks from the Sonics/Thunder.
    We eventually might get lucky and build a dominant team from the ground up from lottery picks after a few more years of mediocrity. Joe can`t afford to have any more draft busts.
    Too bad there is no mercy rule in the NBA.
    Lawrence would have been waving a white flag against the Thunder.
