The Thunder and Bulls will kick off TNT’s Thursday night doubleheader as both teams have shown some signs of promise and signs of struggles this year.
Both the Thunder and Chicago are expected to be deep playoff teams, but some early season struggles have exposed some flaws a bit in both.
Still, both teams sit a game over .500 as they’ve started the season 3-2.
As they get set to play in their 2nd leg of a back-to-back, the Thunder were a bit exposed on Wednesday in their home loss to Toronto.
Leading for a majority of the first half, the Thunder were outscored by 16 points in the 2nd half and choked away a lead down the stretch. Toronto used a compliment of foul shooting and offensive rebounds to steal the win away from the Thunder.
This comes as the 2nd straight game the Thunder have struggled and been inconsistent. Against the Rockets, they took off for a 39 point 2nd quarter, but then scored just 14 in the 3rd as the Rockets came all the back to win.
As it’s been for the past couple seasons, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are still looking for some support. Wednesday, Durant finished with 27 points and Westbrook tallied 22 points and 16 assists.
The key to Thursday and really going forward will be the supporting cast, such as Dion Waiters, stepping up and helping the duo.
PG Derrick Rose is getting the headlines when the Bulls are mentioned as he continues to struggle out of the gate.
Rose has been battling injury after injury over the past couple seasons, but his finally “healthy” and just not producing. Rose finished has finished the last 3 games with single digit points and had just 4 points in the Bulls embarrassing loss to Charlotte.
Chicago, who allows 102.0 points per game, saw the Hornets rack up 130 points in a 130-105 loss.
Along with the struggling Rose is the struggling Noah. Noah continues to lack production offensively and hasn’t been a force defensively like he’s been in the past.
Noah played 17 minutes against Hornets and finished with 0 points and 4 turnovers. He is shooting just 36.4 percent on the season.

The Bulls will run into a very upset Thunder team. Both of the losses for OKC over the past 2 games should have been wins. After blowing a lead to a team that isn’t even on the same level as them last night should fire this OKC team up.
