THE undermanned Detroit Pistons kept their home record unblemished, beating the skidding Oklahoma City Thunder, 104-88, on Monday in Michigan (Tuesday, Manila time).
Tobias Harris led the way with 22 points for the Pistons, who were still without Reggie Jackson and also missed the services of Andre Drummond.
Jackson has not seen action this season due to a recurring left knee injury, while Drummond was ruled out for this game due to a sprained ankle.
Aaron Baynes scored 20 for Detroit, which has won all five games at home and six overall in 11 outings.
Kentavious Caldwell Pope came up with 17 points for the Pistons.
The Thunder absorbed their fourth consecutive loss, with Russell Westbrook registering 33 points and 11 rebounds but no other starter posting double-digit scores.
Starting forward Steven Adams had 11 rebounds and four points, while Jerami Grant and Enes Kanter came off the bench to score 11 and 10 points, respectively.
