Oklahoma City went on a 12-0 run, and a reverse layup by Westbrook put the Thunder up 86-79 and forced the 76ers to call timeout. The Pistons (22-25) have dropped their past seven and are 12-22 following a promising 10-3 start. Paul George has 37.6 fantasy points per game.

Anthony Davis had 25 points and 17 rebounds for the Pelicans. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.9 rebounds per game.

"Those guys all played really well, particularly Westbrook".

"Our bench outplayed their bench", Van Gundy said.

Joel Embiid led the 76ers with 27 points and 10 rebounds.

Neither team is the same as it was on November 24, when the Pistons won at Oklahoma City 99-98.

DeMarcus Cousins Out For Season With Torn Achilles Tendon
As is having players who can take over the role of scoring leader ( Cousins ), defensive anchor ( Davis ) and crash the glass. As for the Pelicans , they'll be hard-pressed to deal for help replacing Cousins at the deadline due to their cap situation.


Kevin Durant's triple double helped Golden State Warriors stay three and a half games clear of the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference. "They're playing off each other and their strengths". On Saturday, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he showed his players film of their turnovers and bad shots. "But down the stretch, we didn't take care of the ball and execute". However, Westbrook and George went into takeover mode-scoring or assisting on the team's final nine field goals of the quarter and turning the deficit into a nine-point advantage before the fourth. "I'm getting exhausted of his little normal dunks". He was 8 of 13 in the second half and also had 14 assists and nine rebounds.

Durant's 28 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds ensured the Warriors eased to victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-113.

"They're a very big, long team", Kennard said.

For all his ability at the defensive end, Roberson is one of the weakest offensive perimeter players in the National Basketball Association.

While still not playing at his absolute peak, Anthony has been impressive over this stretch and will provide a huge challenge for the Pistons when they're on the defensive end.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the NBA's best defensive teams this season, which has surprised many considering their trio of stars are best known for their offensive firepower.
