Russell Westbrook's season-high 46 lead Thunder previous Wizards


More often than not the Pistons are able to hang with most teams for three quarters, but if they allow a team like the Thunder to run riot in the third on Saturday night then they're no chance at taking home a win.

Roberson was taken off the court on a stretcher after his left leg appeared to give out on the receiving end of an alley-oop attempt.

Roberson was averaging 6.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks in 38 games, all starts, for Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City led by 25 points (91-66) when it happened.

It looks like the Thunder saw the real Pistons as well - an inconsistent, defensively deficient team that lacks cohesion and a bona fide offensive lynchpin.

Early reports suspect the defensive specialist has a ruptured patellar tendon- which means he is in danger of missing the remainder of the season.

Unfortunately, too many times they shoot themselves in the foot with poor third quarter performances.

Aaron Gordon had 22 points, and Evan Fournier added with 21 to lead the Magic.




He said it repeatedly, specifically to Paul George, who stood in front of him and just to the side of the scorer's table during a stoppage.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said it will be hard to fill the void left by one of the league's top perimeter defenders.

"It wears people down, especially it wears down a guy like (76ers centre Joel) Embiid", Donovan said. The Thunder are 7-0 when George scores at least 30 points and 11-4 when he scores at least 25.

"A lot changes", Westbrook said.

NEW ORLEANS - Blake Griffin had 27 points and 12 rebounds, and made a crushing 3-pointer with 43 seconds left, leading Los Angeles past New Orleans in the Pelicans' first game since a season-ending injury to All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.

Australian centre Thon Maker played 19 minutes for three points and five rebounds while Boomers guard Matthew Dellavedova contributed seven points, two rebounds and four assists.

Gary Harris top scored for the Nuggets with 23 points, with Trey Lyles adding 21 from the bench.
