Thunder Can’t Complete 28 Point Comeback Against Bulls

Thunder Can’t Complete 28 Point Comeback Against Bulls

Oklahoma City – The Thunder returned home tonight after spending the last 4 games on an
Eastern road trip where they lost all 4 games. It brought their losing streak to 5 in a row and 11
of their last 12. They are in desperate need of a win.
It was going to be a great opportunity because the Bulls came into the game so depleted with
Lonzo Ball, Patrick Williams, and Alex Caruso all out due to injury plus DeMar DeRozan being
out due to rest. Also, Zach LaVine was coming back from missing the last 5 games due to injury
so he was probably going to be rusty (which he was shooting 6-19).
It would have made sense for the Thunder to come out with a lot of intensity and energy on both
ends of the floor because they really need a win and the Bulls were so depleted.
That is not what happened.
They came out decent on the offensive but were very bad defensively and letting the Bulls get a
lot of easy shots. Their offense was decent to start the game but that then tapered off after the 1st
quarter and that combined with their bad defense caused them to get down by 28 and it looked
like it was going to be a blowout win for the Bulls.
Then they started to play great basketball on both ends of the floor and came back to make it a
game to where they actually had a chance to get it to overtime. But after a great comeback, they
ended up losing 111-110.
Credit to them for fighting back and giving themselves a chance at the end but that is why they
have to put together full games of good basketball and not just 42 minutes.
They gave the fans something to cheer about at the end and it increased their lottery odds so
those are the positives.
