That one actually felt like a regular-season game—minus Kevin Durant riding the pine with the game on the line.
The Thunder stayed in this one thanks to 22 points from both Kevin Durant and Jeremy Lamb, and some serious bench production from Steve Adams and Nick Collison who combined for 23 points.
Late turnovers by Perry Jones and Lamb cost the Thunder a chance at winning this one, and those turnovers served as a great reminder of just how youthful the Thunder are.
Adams impressed, scoring 11 points and grabbing seven rebounds in 30 minutes of action. In addition to that, he didn't commit a single turnover and he shot an impressive 4-of-6 from the field.
It's starting to look like the Thunder may have gotten the steal of the 2013 draft, and we saw glimpses of that in this one.
The preseason is officially over for the Thunder, and they certainly have lots to work on before their regular season tips off in Utah against the Jazz on Oct. 30.
They need to improve their offensive ball movement, their defensive rotations and their presence on the glass—the Bulls out-rebounded the Thunder, 46-32.
Chicago got the best of OKC in this one, but I have a feeling that this one won't hold as much value to the Thunder once the regular season rolls around.
