Thunder G Roberson expected to miss rest of season

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Andre Roberson appeared to suffer a serious injury Saturday against Detroit. He was taken to the locker room and was examined by a Spurs team doctor.

The Thunder said guard Andre Roberson is expected to miss the rest of the season after having surgery on a ruptured left patella tendon. The Thunder haven't lost since December 1 when their normal starting lineup is intact, but Roberson's injury casts a pall on their current winning streak going into Sunday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Neither team is the same as it was on November 24, when the Pistons won at Oklahoma City 99-98.

"Obviously, we're frustrated as a team, just like we were frustrated last game when we lost", Harris said.

In their last five games, Philadelphia is 4-1 ATS with 3 unders and 2 overs.

Now the complete antithesis of the Pistons, they have won six games in a row and won eight of their last 11 contests.

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

Zachary Hamilton scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers and Prairie View A&M beat Alabama State 86-80 on Saturday night.

Even with Westbrook's numbers, it looked as if the Sixers would earn a road win when they built a seven-point lead in the third quarter behind the efforts of Embiid and Simmons. McConnell told The Philadelphia Inquirer.

With frustration getting the better of him, the OKC centre blew up at the referee and was given a technical foul which led to coach Billy Donovan calling him to the bench. I think the power forward position is a little irrelevant. "There's a lot of 3s generated through the turnovers, and just generally trying not to push them in the bonus until as late as possible".

"I've never seen a team where I thought in my 20-plus years in the league, they're not going to be very good because they've got too much talent", he said. Rough time to lose Roberson, but the show must go on.

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.

Anthony ranks 21st on the NBA's all-time scoring list and now is 191 points away from passing Jerry West for 20th all time.
