Oklahoma City Thunder
New York Knicks
It was a banner week for the Detroit Pistons compared to the first couple of weeks.
After losing their first eight games, the Pistons won not only their first of the season but their second as well.
It was close but no cigar in the Pistons' second matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder, who were playing their fourth game in five nights. Russell Westbrook had 33 points and 10 rebounds to help the Thunder come back from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter.
The Thunder went small in the fourth and the Pistons couldn't adjust in time.
"They changed up from what they were doing earlier in the game," Tayshaun Prince said. "They kind of threw us off-guard. First few minutes of the fourth, Westbrook was aggressive as far as trying to create some fouls and now we've got to play perfect defense late in the game.
"You foul, that's the best free-throw shooting team in the league so our backs were against the wall in the fourth as far as things ...

Despite a slow start, the Detroit Pistons were able to do something they really haven’t done in a while. Yeah their 103-83 rout of the Boston Celtics was their first home win of the season, but unlike past performances where they’ve taken a lead into the fourth quarter, Detroit was actually able to hold on and finish the game.

The Celtics did their best last night to give these poor Pistons fans something to cheer about. However, they were so busy waiting for a collapse that they couldn't enjoy it. And what's a CFTOS without a wheelchair mention and complaints about the refs. Although, they do admit that they got their share of the calls too. Enjoy today's Comments....

Once again, it took Rondo until the final minute of the game to get his 10th assist, but thanks to Jared Sullinger, Rondo's streak of games with 10 or more assists continues. He is now just 3 games away from John Stockton's record. Doc kept Rondo in the game in the final minutes, even though it was a blow out, to get his 9th and 10 assists. It wasn't that he wasn&...
8 a.m. ET: These Pistons are redefining the nickname, “Bad Boys.”
Through 10 games, the Pistons are really bad. They lost their first eight games and followed up their first win of the season with a loss to the rebuilding Magic. Greg Monroe is still an improving young big man, but once-key players like Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum have continued their fall toward irrelevance...

Jeff Green's monster dunk over Big Al leads the dunks of the week. But, Tayshaun Prince's posterization of former Celtic Big Baby Davis is worth a look as well.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is probably the most explosive guard in the NBA. Yesterday in a game against Golden State his athletic ability was once again on display.
In the second quarter of the game Kevin Durant pulled down a rebound and gave and outlet pass to Westbrook. From there Westbrook did the rest. He dribbled down the court and threw down monster dunk...
Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder) put down a nasty fastbreak slam dunk over Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors). This just isn't fair really -- Curry is still a minor, right?
The NBA came up with a creative advertisement featuring their "BIG Color" Christmas Day uniforms that will be worn by the teams playing that day. The commercial features superstars Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Joe Johnson, Russell Westbrook and Dwayne Wade wearing the special uniforms and dribbling to the beat of "Carol of the Bells".
