Russell Westbrook tends to have some of his worst offensive games against the Detroit Pistons. If that happens again on Monday night, the Pistons will likely keep their perfect home record intact.Westbrooks 17.3 scoring average in 14 career games against Detroit is his lowest output against any opponent, while his 6.3 assist average ranks as his third lowest. Hes shot 36.3 percent from the field and 23.5 percent from long range in those games.Hes having no trouble scoring against anyone this season. Westbrook racked up 41 points, 16 assists and 12 rebounds on Sunday night but the Thunder fell to Orlando, 119-117, on ex-teammate Serge Ibakas last-second basket.Westbrook now has three triple-doubles this season and 40 for his career.The Thunder (6-4) carry a three-game losing streak into Mondays game, giving up an average of 113.7 points in those games. They lost 112-102 to Toronto and 110-108 to the Los Angeles Clippers prior to Sundays heartbreaker.Coach Billy Donovan has seen some offensive progress.Part of our growth as a basketball team is can we take what the defense is giving us? he said. For example, Toronto made it very clear they were going to load up the point. Weve got to get the ball out there and get it moving. We did a much better job of that (against the Clippers). The ball got driven and they gave us 3s. If you consistently make those shots, then teams have to do something different. Its about these guys getting comfortable making those reads and playing together.The Pistons are making a pit stop at The Palace, where theyre 4-0 this season. They wrapped up a four-game road swing on Saturday, salvaging the final game of the trip by defeating Denver, 106-95. Detroit hits the road for two more games this week before a four-game homestand.All of Detroits starters reached double figures against the Nuggets and power forward Jon Leuer added a double-double off the bench with 14 points and 10 rebounds.It was big because we hadnt gotten a road win yet, Leuer said. Obviously capping off this road trip with a win is big and will give us some confidence going into the next game.The Pistons had 52 points in the paint, which offset their 22.2 percent shooting on 3-point attempts.Its our fifth game in eight days and I think we held them to 38 percent in the second half on a night where (Nuggets point guard) Emmanuel Mudiay was nailing 3s and they had a lot of things going their way to get right back into the game, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. We were able to grind it out. We got timely baskets when we needed them.Detroit (5-5) has won by double digits in all of its home games as well, while holding opponents under 90 points each time. The Pistons recorded an 88-82 victory over the Thunder last season at The Palace.Pistons center Andre Drummond will carry a streak of five consecutive double-doubles into the contest. Hes averaging 17.2 points and 15.0 rebounds during that span. . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. OAKLAND, Calif. -- Its been three months since Oakland As rookie left-hander Sean Manaea faced the Seattle Mariners in his second career major league start. Try as he might, Manaea cant forget the 1-0 fastball he threw to Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz with a runner on base in the fifth inning.Cruz sent Manaeas pitch some 435 feet into the second deck in center field at the Oakland Coliseum. It was a monster shot that landed in an area that home runs rarely reach in Oakland.I gave up a bomb to Nelson Cruz, Manaea said. Its probably still going. I try to forget about those hits.Manaea will face the Mariners on Friday for the first time since that May 4 game. He gave up seven hits and four runs -- all in the fifth inning -- and got a no-decision in a 9-8 As loss. Manaea struck out six and walked one.And yes, hes looking forward to a rematch against Cruz and the Mariners.Hes pretty scary in the box, Manaea said. Hes huge. Theyre playing good baseball right now and were playing good baseball. So it will be a fun matchup.I know Im going to face him a lot more throughout my career. Its nice to get him again.Manaea is 3-7 with a 4.58 ERA overall, but hes gone 1/3 with a 3.12 ERA in eight games, including seven starts, since being activated from the disabled list June 29 after recovering from a strained left forearm.Manaea has allowed 16 home runs overall, including five over his past three starts and two in each of his previous two outings.The guys up here are really, really good and if you make a mistake theyre going to make you pay, Manaea said. TThats something Ive got to focus on in growing as a player is minimizing mistakes, try to focus on every pitch to make it the best I can.dddddddddddd.Cruz and Robinson Cano each hit solo home runs Wednesday when the Mariners defeated Detroit 3-1 to sweep the three-game series and win their sixth straight game. Cruz has 28 home runs, Cano 25 and Kyle Seager 21. Theyll come into Fridays series opener against Oakland well rested after an off day.A lot of things are starting to come together, Mariners manager Scott Servais said after Wednesdays win. Whether its our bullpen jibing -- the pieces are starting to come together there -- the offense, the timely hitting, just the belief in our team.And, of course, the power. The Mariners have hit 159 home runs, third most in the major leagues.The Mariners are expected to send rookie left-hander Ariel Miranda to the mound for his second major league start. Thats unless they have a change of plans after using Miranda for an inning of relief on Tuesday in their 6-5, 15-inning victory against Detroit on Tuesday.Seattle acquired Miranda from Baltimore in a trade deadline deal for left-hander Wade Miley. Miranda made his Mariners debut on Saturday against Boston and allowed two runs over six innings in a 3-2 loss. He struck out five and walked one.The 60-53 Mariners will face an As team that fell to 51-63 on Thursday with a 9-6 loss to Baltimore but took 3-of-4 from the Orioles.
