Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points to surpass the 25,000-point milestone and Russell Westbrook had 31 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds to lift the surging Oklahoma City Thunder to a 121-108 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.

The fall occurred late in the third quarter of the team's game against the Detroit Pistons. He was taken off the court on a stretcher, and it looks likely that he's suffered a serious injury. In 39 games this season, all starts, Roberson is averaging 5.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists.

Oklahoma City led by 25 points (91-66) when it happened.

The Thunder said guard Andre Roberson is expected to miss the rest of the season after having surgery on a ruptured left patella tendon. Tied at 68 at the third quarter's 4:26 marker and with officials reviewing a potential Steven Adams foul (which was eventually ruled a technical), the Thunder were struggling to hold. "The only thing I did was kind of take a knee and pray a little bit and hope things go for the best at that point".

Tobias Harris and Anthony Tolliver each scored 20 points for the Pistons.

The Thunder shooting guard was in the middle of both All-Defensive Team and Defensive Player of the Year discussions.

Roberson's absence will also make it hard for All-Star Paul George, also considered one of the best perimeter defenders in the league, to gamble for steals.

In the first quarter, Embiid got the best of Westbrook in what was one of the most disrespectful and awesome dunks of the season so far.

"It wears people down, especially it wears down a guy like (76ers centre Joel) Embiid", Donovan said.

Westbrook complemented his season-high 46 points with six assists and six rebounds.

Oklahoma City forward Paul George will replace injured New Orleans center DeMarcus Cousins on Team LeBron in the NBA All-Star Game.

"It's tough", Westbrook said. Embiid had 27 points and 10 rebounds, and Ben Simmons added 22 points for the 76ers.

The beef between the reigning MVP and Embiid began back in December when Westbrook led the Thunder to a 119-117 victory over the Sixers.
