The Detroit Pistons are a team in turmoil. Losing their last 11 games, their last win was against the Oklahoma Thunder. It almost happened again as Josh Smith launched a game winner, 3-point shot with 1.1 seconds to play.
“Obviously, I was going for the win, or I wouldn’t have shot a 3,” Smith said. “I had a great look, but it just didn’t go down.”
Serge Ibaka was huge for the Thunder scoring 13 points and adding 13 rebounds to boot.
“I thought Serge was tremendous,” Durant said. “He was chasing down all of those rebounds and scoring when we were kicking them out to him. We had possessions where we had three great shots and three offensive rebounds. We’re doing a good job of rebounding the ball.”
