The duo of Shai Gilgeous Alexander and Josh Giddey once again proved to be strong for their opponents, as they put up 21 and 25 points respectively. Jalen Williams also came out good and scored 22 points in the win. Zach LaVine from the Bulls was the only one to come with 25 points but it just wasn't enough to seal them a win.

The Thunder are now 6-4 in their last ten, fighting it out for the playoffs spot. They will now take on the Brooklyn Nets (27-14), who are second in the East, and suffered a defeat in their last outing against the leaders, the Boston Celtics (109-98).

Kevin Durant's absence was felt in the game against the Celtics, as they proved to be too strong for the Nets. Despite Kyrie Irving's 24 points and T.J Warren's 20 points, the Celtics made a cumulative effort to win the game. However, Brooklyn is still in a decent position in the conference.
