Indianapolis, IN ( – Josh Smith scored 30 points to lead the
Detroit Pistons to an improbable 101-96 road win over the Indiana Pacers from

Thunder (12-0) remain unbeaten at home.

Greg Monroe recorded a 13-point, 12-rebound double-double in the triumph, just
Detroit’s second in its last six games. Brandon Jennings had 18 points and
eight assists.

Lance Stephenson netted a career-high 23 points with seven rebounds and six
assists in the setback. Paul George tallied 17 points with nine rebounds and
Luis Scola scored 18 off the bench.
