The Pistons led by 10 with 10 minutes to play, and by all accounts played a great overall game, but they were outscored 28-17 the rest of the final quarter of the season. Durant scored 16 of those 28, including a driving dunk with 16 seconds left to play to put the Thunder up by the final score, 112-111.
Who stood out:
-- Box Score
-- Andre Drummond finished with 22 and 13 before fouling out. It was his Eastern Conference best 57th double-double of the season.
-- Greg Monroe nearly recorded a triple-double with 22 points, eight rebounds and nine assists.
-- Josh Smith didn't play and the Pistons were better -- imagine that!
-- Breathe. The season is finally over.
-- As I type this, the Kings are tied with the Suns at the half. If the Kings win, the Pistons will be tied with them for the 7th worst record in the NBA, with a coin flip deciding the combinations for the two teams.
