The Chicago Bulls came off a great win, defeating the Charlotte Bobcats the other day with a final score 105-75. Tonight, they have no answer as the Oklahoma City Thunder team thrashed the Chicago Bulls with a final score…
We start off with the first quarter of action. Everything seemed to go good, you know. The Bulls hung in there as OKC was just up 13-8 as Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka hit a couple dunks, layups and jumpers here and there. They would go to lead 17-10, than at the end of the first quarter, the Thunder were up 24-16. I got to give credit to Joakim Noah, Luol Deng and Taj Gibson though as they held the Bulls in there and from having a horrendous game (or so I thought).
Onto the second quarter and after a earful of Tom Thibodeau yelling at the Bulls, the squad got their acts together, or at least tried. The Bulls didn’t actually hit a shot until about two minutes in this quarter. Marco Belinelli hit a three-pointer, bringing the deficit down. Thunder led 25-19 at this point.
Where not done though. The trio of Westbrook, Durant and Ibaka as they hit more jumpers, free throws and a couple lobs here and there. Boozer however tried to hang time and as he hit a couple layups, but nonetheless, the Bulls went into the half, trailing 49-36.
Onto the second half, third quarter. If you thought the Bulls couldn’t do any worse, you’re sadly mistaken. Serge Ibaka started the quarter with a three-pointer, with the assist from Durant. Nate Robinson however made a jump shot and free throws, keeping the Bulls still in the game, for now. Luol Deng, Richard Hamilton and the crew kept knocking down shots after shocks but those pesky Thunder guys wouldn’t go away. After the third quarter, the Bulls were down by a dramatic 54-80. Just wow.
Finally we head onto the fourth quarter. The last quarter was just horrible, so horrible.
With the Bulls down 85-58, we saw a rare Nazr Mohammed sighting. Mohammed went on to dunk, continuing with a tip shot and another dunk finishing with six points. Vladamir Radmanovic entered the game shooting a nice three point with the assist from Mohammed. As well, Belinelli shot a couple more three points while Marquis Teague contributed dropping dimes everywhere. The final score of a blood bath in Oklahoma City was 102-72.
Oh and if tonight’s loss wasn’t bad enough, we lost a soldier. Taj Gibson to be exact.
Hopefully the injury isn’t as bad as they say it is, because we all know the Bulls can’t afford anymore injuries at this point.
Looking at the statistics and the both teams shockingly had 14 turnovers each. However the Bulls shot a season low 29.1 percent from the field. The lowest percentage of any team this season, so theres that.
On Tuesday they go back to the United Center where they welcome
Lebron James Kyrie Irving and the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers
