The Oklahoma City Thunder are now only one game behind the Chicago Bulls for the NBA's best record as Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined for 53 points as the Thunder took care of the Bulls 92-78 in the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Thunder were able to keep up their hot shooting as OKC shot 49% from the field and Scott Brooks' defense was able to corral the Bulls offense and held them to just 33% shooting as a team. This is the tenth consecutive game that the Bulls have been without the services of Derrick Rose, and although Chicago falls to 7-3 with no Rose in the lineup, the Bulls struggled to stay in front of the explosive Westbrook and Durant.
Oklahoma City will prepare to host the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night at home, but before you leave. Feel free to enjoy a massive throwdown by Westbrook on the Bulls big man Omer Asik. GET OUT THE WAY BIG FELLA!
Russell Westbrook doesn't know how to chill when it comes to attacking the rim. Good for him.
