The Detroit Pistons fell Monday night at home to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Their biggest struggle, shooting the basketball.

The Detroit Pistons lose the last game of their six game home-stand, 110-83 to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The number one ranked defense of OKC exploited the Detroit offense tonight.

In the game preview I mentioned to look out for the Adams and Drummond match-up.

Drummond was held to just 13 points and 6 rebounds, in 23 minutes of play. He and Zaza Pachulia both with 4 personal fouls for the Pistons.

Adams on the other end had 21 points and 6 rebounds in 28 minutes of play. Anchoring the defense, Adams also added in 2 blocks.

Pistons shot just 33 percent from the field and 18.8 percent from beyond the arc. This is by far the worst shooting performance for the Pistons this season.

The Pistons had a season low in points tonight at just 83 points on the night. Their previous low was 89 points in the loss to the Celtics earlier this season.

Blake Griffin was Detroit’s leading scorer tonight scoring 20 points in 30 minutes of play. Griffin also added in 5 rebounds and 4 assists.

Luke Kennard played his first game after missing 16 due to a shoulder injury. Kennard did not score in 12 minutes of play and was 0-5 from the field.

Jon Leuer was the surprise for the Pistons tonight coming off the bench after halftime to score 12 points in 9 minutes. He also grabbed 4 rebounds while shooting 4-7 from the field.

3 minutes into the game, Reggie Bullock went down with a sprained ankle and left the game to not return. There is still uncertainty at this time what the injury is officially and how long he will be out.

With Kennard returning we could see him or Bruce Brown fill in for Bullock in the coming games if Bullock does have to miss a few.
