Live updates throughout the game, after the break.
Final: Thunder 102, Bulls 72. Bulls shoot 29.1%, the lowest percentage from any team this season.— The NBA on ESPN (@ESPNNBA) February 25, 2013
Well, we're all glad that one ended.
The Chicago Bulls dropped an absolute dud, shooting 29.1 percent from the floor and just 22.2 percent from beyond the arc.
They're lucky they only lost by 30, to the tune of 102 to 72 at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
This one wasn't close from the tip, thanks to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook who combined for 42 points on the night.
In all honesty, the Bulls didn't seem like they were ready to compete tonight, and it had nothing to do with not having Derrick Rose.
They were overpowered, out-manned and overwhelmed from the tip.
The Thunder on the other hand looked back to their true form, ready to compete with the best of the best in the NBA.
It's amazing that the Bulls are closing in on 75 points.
That's quite an accomplishment for shooting 29.4 percent.

Did Kevin Durant win an Oscar for Thunderstruck?

It's a race to 100, only the Bulls gave up once they won the tipoff.
Thunder 93, Bulls 62—4:26 remaining in the 4th quarter
It's a shame this one isn't close, because Kevin Durant has 19 points and 16 rebounds.
He could very likely have had his first 20 and 20 game if he wasn't wasting away on the bench because the Bulls can't score.
Thunder 93, Bulls 62—5:35 remaining in the 4th quarter
What's more likely to happen, the Bulls end with the worst shooting night of any NBA team this season, or they lose by 30?
I'm going with both.
Thunder 90, Bulls 60—6:33 remaining in the 4th quarter
Don't know why you'd be watching the Oscars over this stellar Thunder-Bulls game, but if you still need a reason, Jeremy Lamb is playing.— Royce Young (@dailythunder) February 25, 2013
Perry Jones sure hasn't been the player that most fans thought he would be so far this year.
Maybe it's court time, or just development, but he still has a high upside.
Thunder 86, Bulls 58—8:55 remaining in the 4th quarter
Marco Belinelli should get thrown out for that kind of foul, especially since the game isn't even close.
Definitely a frustration foul, but still, he shouldn't be allowed on the court.
Thunder 86, Bulls 58—9:25 remaining in the 4th quarter
I'd say this is the Bulls' "scrub unit" but it's not. They're definitely still trying to pull out a win in this one.
Teague, Belinelli, Butler, Gibson, Mohammed on the floor to start the 4th qtr. #CHIvsOKC— Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) February 25, 2013
Thunder 82, Bulls 58—10:15 remaining in the 4th quarter
The Chicago Bulls are doing all they can to be the first team all season to shoot under 29.0 percent for an entire game.
They're currently at 25.0 percent, but I'm sure they won't get into the 30s.
Thunder 80, Bulls 54—start of the 4th quarter
Can we just call this one at the end of the 3rd? Isn't there a 25-point rule or something?
Thunder 74, Bulls 47—2:15 remaining in the 3rd quarter
If the Bulls could just make some shots ... Their defense isn't awful. Unfortunately though their offense is worse than awful, it's atrocious—which may be an understatement.
22.6 FG%, 18.2 3PFG%
Thunder 72, Bulls 47—3:21 remaining in the 3rd quarter
And another throw-down by Russell Westbrook.
He's getting close to having more dunks than the entire Bulls team's points total.
Thunder 68, Bulls 43—4:48 remaining in the 3rd quarter
The Bulls are streaking, cover your eyes four-straight points. Watch out their about to catch fire.
Thunder 61, Bulls 43—6:05 remaining in the 3rd quarter
If Perkins takes every single Thunder shot for the rest of the game, I give the Bulls a fighting chance.— Bulls by the Horns (@BullsbytheHorns) February 25, 2013
The Thunder could play with just four players right now and I still think the Bulls wouldn't be able to score enough to get back in this one.
It's like there's a lid on their basket.
Thunder 61, Bulls 39—9:00 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Can I call someone to donate points to the Bulls? Is there a telethon or something?— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) February 25, 2013
Good spacing, smart shooting and efficient defense for the Thunder.
I wish the same could be said for the Bulls.
Thunder 59, Bulls 39—9:19 remaining in the 3rd quarter
In a shocking turn of events, the Bulls start the second half off with a made basket, and a chance at a three-point play.
It's like the only guy who wants to play tonight in red is Nate Robinson—13 points on 3-of-10 shooting.
Thunder 54, Bulls 39—10:40 remaining in the 3rd quarter
It's going to take a big turnaround for the Bulls if they want to take down OKC in their place after such a terrible start.
Thunder 49, Bulls 36—start of the 3rd quarter
And an award goes to the Bulls entire team for putting up 48 shots in a single half.
The award for Best Performance goes to Nate Robinson trying to dunk on Serge Ibaka.— ESPN (@espn) February 25, 2013
