Pistons Vs. Thunder Final Score: Detroit Falls To 4-14 With 20-Point Loss To Oklahoma City

The Detroit Pistons dropped to 4-14 on the season after getting dropped by the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night, 99-79. The Thunder improved upon their best Western record to 14-3.

Detroit was never in it, although they didn't fall behind double digits until about, oh, the halfway point of the first quarter. They were down 17 after one quarter, though, and it was more a question of if the Pistons would lose by 40 rather than getting back into it.

Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Russel Westbrook combined for 68 of the Thunder's 99 points on 28-for-41 shooting. That's stupid good.

Rookie Brandon Knight was the team's leading scorer with 13 points on 5-for-9 shooting. Greg Monroe continued to struggle, scoring 12 points on 3-for-14 shooting and grabbing seven rebounds.

The Pistons will go after their fifth win in 19 tries on Wednesday vs. the Heat. T-Pain will be there.
