Oklahoma City Thunder roll over Chicago Bulls, remain undefeated at home

See also

The Oklahoma City Thunder have now won eight games in a row and remain undefeated in 13 home appearances. The latest win came on Dec. 19 when the Thunder knocked off the Chicago Bulls, 107-95, in the confines of Chesapeake Arena in Oklahoma City.

Kevin Durant led the way for the Thunder with 32 points and nine rebounds, while also dishing out six assists, three steals and blocking one shot. It was a solid all-around performance by one of the best players in the NBA.

It was enough to keep the Thunder undefeated at home as they took advantage of a reeling Bulls’ team that can’t seem to overcome the loss of their star Derrick Rose. While Joakim Noah played well, finishing with a double-double, scoring 23 points with 12 rebounds, it wasn’t nearly enough to stop the top team in the NBA.

Russell Westbrook finished with 20 points and 10 assists for a double-double of his own, Thabo Sefolosha scored 10, Serge Ibaka finished with an impressive three blocks, and Reggie Jackson continued his impressive play from the bench, with 18 points and five rebounds.

With the win, Oklahoma City increases their record to 21-4 (.840). The Thunder division rival Portland Trail Blazers have the second best record in the NBA, at 22-5 (.815). However, next up on Saturday, the Thunder plays a San Antonio Spurs team that sits half-a-game back from the Western Conference lead, and things could change depending on that game.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs tip off at 8:30 p.m. EST from the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
