Pistons press Thunder, but can't finish: 90-92

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

After physically punishing the Oklahoma City through three quarters, the Thunder pull past down the stretch to keep the Pistons winless.

The Pistons gave the Thunder all they wanted, particularly Kevin Durant. But in the end, their talent was too much for Detroit and the Pistons fell to 0-8.

-Maxiell was the story of the game, dominating the paint with 3 blocks and consistent pressure.

-Moose broke his double-double streak, but was solid with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 4 steals.

-Stuckey had his best game of the season with 19 points on 13 shots along with 5 assists.

-Drummond was great, and he really should have seen more minutes.

-Pistons continued to look improved on the glass. -5 for the game, but were even most of the way through.

-The Thunder got an extra 15 trips to the line, but it's tough to complain too much about the foul disparity. Durant had a lot of trouble in the paint, with 5 shots blocked, a couple turnovers, and Brandon Knight forcing a jump ball.
