The Chicago Bulls traveled to Wichita, Kansas, to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. They took an 11-point lead into halftime, but the lead was completely erased in the third quarter as the Bulls played their worst game of the preseason.
They were sloppy on both ends of the ball through most of the game, and their lead was largely deceptive. The Thunder comeback was hardly a surprise, as failure to follow through on rotations on the defensive end and rushed shots and bad passes on the offensive end eventually caught up with the Bulls.
However, in the fourth quarter, Derrick Rose happened, and the Bulls pulled away down the stretch to beat the Thunder 104-95. And the Bulls, with a 7-0 record, clinched the utterly meaningless preseason crown.
Following are game grades for the Bulls starting five and an overall grade for the bench as well.
