Welcome to the club, Carmelo Anthony.

Oklahoma City fueled its offense against Washington by forcing 23 turnovers, which it turned into 36 points. He was 8-for-13 in the second half and also had 14 assists and nine rebounds. Teams shot 37.2 percent from 3-point range against the Thunder in the 10 games he missed, as compared to 35.3 percent in other games; and foes have generally shot better - something that can't be attributed to a single defender.

The Thunder roll into Detroit on Saturday with a six-game winning streak.

Westbrook recorded his 15th triple-double this season (31 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists).

It was a bittersweet day for the Thunder.

Per Wojnarowski, Roberson will be examined when the team returns to Oklahoma City, but the expectation is that he'll need season-ending surgery to replace the patellar tendon. "'Dre is my boy". "I'm not running with him".

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy moved Langston Galloway into Jackson's spot in the starting lineup last week and Ish Smith (Jackson's primary backup) back to the bench.

HOUSTON - James Harden had 27 points and 10 rebounds to lead Houston.

Thunder: Host the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night. Oklahoma City went on a 12-0 run, and a reverse layup by Westbrook put the Thunder up 86-79 and forced the 76ers to call timeout.

The Thunder led 92-83 at the end of the third.

Roberson was hurt with 4:33 left in the third quarter after he slipped running toward the basket during the Thunder's 121-108 win over the Pistons.

So in theory, Oklahoma City should improve offensively to make up some of the defensive hit.

Roberson is a very solid role player who averages five points and 4.7 rebounds per game for the Thunder.

"We made runs, they made runs", Simmons said. And as good as they are defensively, we've got to be able to take care of the ball.

Adams was issued a technical foul for kicking Beal in the groin in the third quarter.

On the back of a career year so far which sees him leading the league in offensive rebounding and in the top echelon of field goal percentage, opposition coaches have begun to take notice.

The Detroit Pistons' night was not as victorious, however, as they saw their tally of losses reach eight in a row after defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
