The Pistons were down 10 at halftime, but then the third quarter happened. It was a disaster as the Thunder put up 37 compared to Detroit’s 19. The Thunder length, speed and smarts was alarming.
Simply, the Thunder defense was too much for the Pistons all night.
A few thoughts
Glenn Robinson III is really struggling right now, and that’s being nice about it. Glenn isn’t giving the team very much. This game was especially ugly — Glenn just doesn’t look comfortable.
Hopefully Reggie Bullock isn’t out too long with his tweaked ankle he suffered in the first. The spacing tonight was horrendous, but credit the Thunder for knowing Detroit’s personnel and packing it in. Detroit was just extra terrible though, going 6-of-32 from downtown. That’s 18.8% percent.
Time for bed.
