Steven Adams won't play on Wednesday when the Thunder hosts the Chicago Bulls. "You're not breeding any confidence for yourselves". The Thunder held Chicago below 80 points for the second time, including a seven-point first quarter that put the game out of reach before it barely even started.

"I thought we did a good of of being aggressive, using our hands", Russell Westbrook said.

Oklahoma City will attempt to build on their 2 game win streak against the Chicago Bulls.

"You've got to come out and see that thing go through the hoop".

Two Thunder players had double-doubles, with Carmelo Anthony scoring 18 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, and Jerami Grant, playing against his brother Jerian, scoring 15 points and also totalling 11 rebounds. "That's how we win games".

Forward Lauri Markkanen led the Bulls (2-10) with 16 points and six rebounds.

"In the second half, we never got into a rhythm", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. "Right now, we don't have a lot, especially early in games".

Paul George has been the catalyst for the two-game run with an average of 39.5 points while making 11 3-pointers, including seven in Sunday's 112-99 win over Dallas. Robin Lopez scored a team-high, 17 points, during their last game against the Spurs. "He's so explosive. There's a reason he was the MVP last season".

Though the Thunder were never threatened in the second half, they had hoped to finish better.

NOTES: Thunder C Steven Adams missed his third game with a right calf contusion. That margin of defeat eclipsed Chicago's 32-point loss against Oklahoma City at home on October 28, when the Bulls shot 28.2 percent from the floor in matching their lowest offensive output since February 21, 2013. All the losses have been by nine or fewer.
