Notebook: Thunder 97, Bulls 85


Kent McDill, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Mar 17, 2014 11:55 PM - Updated Mon Mar 17, 2014 11:55 PM

THE FACT: The Thunder have beaten the Bulls five consecutive times and are now 10-2 as the road team against Eastern Conference opponents.

THE LEAD: Kevin Durant had 35 points and 12 rebounds while Russell Westbrook came back from his day off to record a near triple-double as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Chicago Bulls 97-85 on Monday night at the United Center. Westbrook finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and nine assists for the Thunder (49-18), while Taj Gibson led the Bulls (37-30) with 16 points and Carlos Boozer had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

THE STAT: The Bulls shot just 34.5 percent for the game, and no player other than sub forward Tony Snell (1-for-1) managed to hit 50 percent of his shots. The Thunder were not much better at 41 percent, but Durant was 11-for-21 from the field.

TURNING POINT: At 76-75 in favor of Oklahoma City, the Bulls were making a run and getting the St. Patrick's Day crowd frenzied. But the Thunder scored the next 13 points with baskets from five different players while the Bulls went 0-for-11 and the Thunder had a 89-75 lead with 3:45 left.

QUOTABLE: "Our transition game is predicated on getting stops. We did a good job making them miss a lot of shots."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks

THE STAT II: The Thunder were 13-for-25 (52 percent) from 3-point range while the Bulls were 5-for-21 (24 percent). D.J. Augustin, who was shooting 42 percent from long distance as a Bull, was 0-for-6.

QUOTABLE II: "Coach drew up a lot of pick and rolls, which created a lot of open shots for us. They opened up the defense a little bit and that spread them out, which allowed us to get some points in the paint."
-- Thunder forward Kevin Durant

THE STAT III: The Bulls had only five turnovers in the game, and the Thunder scored only four points off the miscues. The Thunder had 11 turnovers leading to 19 Bulls points.

HOT: Durant extended his streak of games with at least 25 points to 31, just nine short of Michael Jordan's 40, the longest such streak in the last 50 years of the NBA.

NOT: The Bulls' guards (Augustin, Kirk Hinrich and Jimmy Butler) combined to go 10-for-35 (28.5 percent)

QUOTABLE III: "Durant is tough to guard. Jimmy [Butler] had to cover a lot of ground. You have to guard him with your team."
-- Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau

GOOD MOVE: If resting Westbrook for one game on a back-to-back allows him to provide a 17-9-9 game, then the plan makes sense. Brooks also used a small lineup in the third quarter to affect the Bulls and neutralize Noah and Boozer, who played only 24 minutes.

BAD MOVE: The Bulls made the mistake of allowing the NBA to give them a six-game homestand with five of the teams being playoff-caliber clubs (Memphis, Miami, San Antonio, Houston and Oklahoma City). The Bulls went 3-3 on the homestand.

ROOKIE WATCH: Steven Adams of the Thunder did not score in 20 minutes as the starting center but had six rebounds. Andre Roberson had two points with two turnovers in 14 minutes as the starting off-guard for Oklahoma City.

NOTABLE: The Bulls wore green long-sleeve jerseys to commemorate St. Patrick's Day, and had their worst shooting night since Feb. 3. ... Bulls backup center Nazr Mohammed had eight rebounds in six minutes. ... In two games against the defensive-minded Bulls this season, Durant has averaged 33.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, and shot 58.5 percent from the field and 78 percent from 3-point range. ... The Bulls have been led in scoring by a bench player in nine of their last 11 games.

UP NEXT: For the Bulls, Wednesday @ Philadelphia, Friday @ Indiana, Saturday vs. Philadelphia. For the Thunder, Thursday @ Cleveland, Friday @ Toronto, Monday vs. Denver.
