Bad shooting night

Oklahoma City shot 10-of-37 from behind the 3-point line and shot 35 percent for the game. The Thunder are the second-worst 3-point shooting team in the NBA, but they continue to throw up 30-plus shots from behind the arc each game.

 

No defense

After the Thunder took a one-point lead with about three minutes left until halftime, Chicago outscored OKC by 29 while scoring 39 and 34 in the third and fourth quarters, respectively. Chicago shot 60 percent from the floor even though it took 19 less shots than OKC, but the Bulls made 11 more shots than the home team.

 

No help for Westbrook

Westbrook scored 28 points, grabbed five rebounds and had eight assists but no one helped him out. Jerami Grant was the next leading scorer with 15, followed by Victor Oladipo’s 12. Steven Adams and Domantas Sabonis had lackluster performances. The Thunder are continuing to struggle without Enes Kanter on the floor.
