OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Serge Ibaka scored a career-high 25 points, Kevin Durant chipped in a season-high 25 points and 13 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder broke in its new alternate jerseys by beating the winless Detroit Pistons 105-94 on Friday night.

The Thunder scored nine straight points soon after Durant checked back into the game midway through the fourth quarter, stretching their lead to 93-77 after the three-time NBA scoring champion hit two free throws with 5:47 to play.

Detroit never got closer than nine after that, falling to 0-6 on the season - one loss shy of matching the worst start in franchise history.

First-round draft pick Andre Drummond led the Pistons with a career-high 22 points - 15 more than any of his first five games. Tayshaun Prince contributed 16 points and Rodney Stuckey scored 15.
