Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had one of the most efficient nights of his career, scoring 27 points on 12-of-15 shooting and the Thunder as a team hit 61.3% of their shots. But it was a stout defensive stand over the last 113 seconds of the game that allowed OKC to beat Detroit.
The Thunder were down by a point, 107-106, with 1:53 left then went on an 8-0 run to finish off the Pistons 114-107.
The win broke a two-game losing streak for Oklahoma City in which the offense couldn't seem to do anything right. The Thunder have now won 10 of their last 11 road games and have two more left on this trip, tomorrow night in New York and Sunday in Boston.
