The Oklahoma City Thunder was able to hold on for a 110-104 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night at the ‘Peake. The win could not have come at a better time for OKC as they had lost 3 of their previous 4.

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Chicago Bulls, who defeated the Thunder 114-112 in Chicago just 10 days ago. OKC had no business losing that game, and the Bulls are still one of the worst teams in the league, so the Thunder should take care of business early tonight rather than let Chicago hang around and make a game of it.
