AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) – Kevin Durant scored 28 points, Russell Westbrook added 22 points and 11 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Detroit Pistons 96-94 on Sunday night.

The Pistons have lost 12 straight, two short of the franchise record. Detroit’s last win came on Nov. 14 in overtime at Oklahoma City, a game that both Durant and Westbrook missed due to injury.

Serge Ibaka added 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led Detroit with 19 points.

The Thunder led 77-75 going into the fourth, then scored the first seven points of the period, including another four-shot possession. Oklahoma City’s surge got an exclamation point when Westbrook broke through the Detroit defense and dunked on Josh Smith.
