The Thunder have lost five of their past eight games and one of the reasons why is the lack of support for Russell Westbrook

The Pistons’ rally from 16 points down entering the fourth quarter Sunday night at Toronto represents their largest such comeback in a regulation game since the team moved to Detroit in 1957-58. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was 1-for-11 from 3-point range before draining the game-winning corner 3 with 13.2 seconds to go; call it a nice early present for KCP in advance of his 24th birthday this coming weekend. Also notable from Detroit’s successful rally: With Reggie Jackson averaging just 8.8 PPG and 5.5 APG over his past eight games while shooting 32 percent from the floor, Ish Smith logged 31 minutes against the Raptors … compared to Jackson’s 17.

Oklahoma City Thunder: The Thunder have lost five of their past eight games and one of the reasons why is the lack of support for Russell Westbrook. Victor Oladipo, widely considered the team’s second-best scoring option, is shooting just 40.9 percent in his past 10 games and his distributing has been just as poor (2.5 APG). OKC is going to need much more from Oladipo and the rest of the supporting cast to make a deep run in the playoffs.

Olynyk gets some grief for his long hair, though teammates have typically approved of the look. The Celtics ran an in-game video last season in which teammates were asked to give their thoughts on the man bun. Said Isaiah Thomas, “I give my guy a thumbs up. The man bun I guess is in nowadays, and he does it well. He wears it well.”

Teammates give Olynyk more flak for his ever-present baseball cap. Teammates like to joke that the first thing Olynyk typically puts on after showering is a hat. And he can’t argue that point.

But he also doesn’t stress too much about headwear. After seeing the man bun/headband data, Olynyk promised he wouldn’t start overthinking which style to utilize. He’s fine with whatever the splits say so long as he’s able to have a positive impact on the Celtics and the team continues to win games.
