Pistons Snap Thunders Winning Streak

The Oklahoma City Thunder faced the Pistons in Detroit last night. Prior to the game, it was announced that Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka would have the opportunity to rest up. The OKC Thunder is close to having the third seed locked up in the Western Conference, and the Pistons are fighting to lock up the last seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Pistons took full advantage of Durant and Ibaka on the bench allowing the Thunder to score only nine points in the third quarter. There was a rally in the fourth where the Thunder closed the 15-point gap to only one point, but the Pistons came out with the win breaking the Thunders winning streak with the Pistons 88, Thunder 82.

Russell Westbrook had 24 points and four rebounds. Enes Kanter received a double –double as he contributed 14 points and 14 rebounds.

Marcus Morris had 24 points and seven rebounds for the Pistons. Former Thunder player Reggie Jackson contributed 13 points and celebrated the win against his former teammates with a second left on the clock by throwing his hands in the air.

The Thunder are back in Oklahoma City on Thursday and will face the Clippers at 8:30 p.m.
