Carmelo Anthony Becomes 21st Player Ever to Score 25000 Career Points

Roberson will undergo further testing once he returns to Oklahoma City.

Joel Embiid (27 points, 10 rebounds) and Ben Simmons (22 points, seven assists and four rebounds) led the Sixers (24-21).

The 33-year-old forward, in his 15th National Basketball Association campaign, was 17 points shy of the milestone entering the contest.

"Our bench outplayed their bench", Van Gundy said. "Their starting lineup just dominated us".

George hit a 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer to trim Philadelphia's lead to 58-57. "They're playing off each other and their strengths". That's something we should be able to do a better job of. "It's tough for us, because we were walking the ball up every time instead of getting a rebound, getting in transition". Tied at 68 at the third quarter's 4:26 marker and with officials reviewing a potential Steven Adams foul (which was eventually ruled a technical), the Thunder were struggling to hold. Westbrook's 3-pointer with just under three minutes to play put the Thunder up seven, and he followed with a jumper to make it a nine-point game with two minutes left. Ish Smith tallied 15 points (7-of-8 shooting) and nine assists. Kevin Love added 20 points and 11 rebounds to shake off last week's controversy.

However, the Pistons have proven they can compete with good teams, even across this woeful stretch without Reggie Jackson. Not necessarily number of possessions but the decisiveness and deliberateness with which the team plays, how quickly it gets into its offensive sets.

While still not playing at his absolute peak, Anthony has been impressive over this stretch and will provide a huge challenge for the Pistons when they're on the defensive end. The 76ers rank 19th in second chance points allowed per game (12.8).

Making a deal will be challenging for Oklahoma City.

The Pistons have dropped five in a row at home and continue to fall further out of playoff contention in the Eastern Conference.

If the Thunder's coaching staff knows Roberson will be out the remainder of the season, they might get more creative in replacing him.
