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

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

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

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.
