Pistons edged by Thunder, fall to 0-8

Posted: Updated:

Russell Westbrook scored a season-high 33 points and keyed a fourth-quarter comeback as the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied to beat the winless Detroit Pistons 92-90 on Monday night.

The loss left the Pistons with an 0-8 record, the worst start in franchise history. It was the fourth game in five nights for the Thunder, who improved to 6-2.

Westbrook, who also had 10 rebounds and four assists, contributed six points -- all on free throws -- to a 13-0 Thunder run to open the fourth quarter that turned a 73-62 deficit into a 75-73 lead with 8:11 left.

Kevin Durant, who hit a tough runner with 47.8 seconds remaining that gave Oklahoma City an 88-85 advantage, added 26 points and nine rebounds.
