Pistons rally to beat Thunder

(TSX / STATS) -- OKLAHOMA CITY -- At halftime, his team trailing by 10 points, Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy lit into his players.

"I just didn't think we fought hard," Van Gundy said after Detroit pulled out a 99-98 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night. "I thought we were sort of in the right spots at times in the first half but not with a commitment to really stop anybody and not with a commitment to rebound and things like that. I just thought our commitment to try to get the job done was a lot higher in the second half."

That commitment showed through in Andre Drummond, one of the primary focuses of Van Gundy's halftime talk.
