On Saturday evening, though, Roberson appeared to suffer a severe left leg injury when he slipped on his way up for an alley-oop against the Detroit Pistons.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Andre Roberson was wheeled off on a stretcher Saturday at Detroit after his left leg was placed in an air cast.

The defensive specialist is averaging 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds for a Thunder team that has now won seven straight games. Roberson hit the ground hard afterward and pushed his body with his arms to the sideline before realizing he wouldn't be able to get up without pain.

The Pistons coach was amused when people questioned whether LeBron James could mesh his skills with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh when that trio joined forced in Miami. 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.

"I was thinking about after the game the irony of me getting 25,000 points here in Detroit, knowing after that '03 draft and what things could have been", Anthony said with a smile.

Ben Simmons had 22 points and seven assists in Philadelphia's loss to a Russell Westbrook-led Oklahoma City in an otherwise quiet day for Australia's National Basketball Association players.

"We thought going in that those were the three biggest keys in the game and I don't think we did a very good job on any of them", Van Gundy said. "We lost a little bit there, and rightfully so".

Bradley Beal scored 41 points and Markieff Morris added 20 for the, who committed 23 turnovers. They can't get too comfortable, however, as they have to bounce back tomorrow night against Philadelphia.

Cousins sustained his injury late in the loss to Houston, days after being named a starter for his third All-Star game.
