The Oklahoma City Thunder's bench didn't play well in the second quarter of their game with the Milwaukee Bucks as their starters rested, but the first team came out in full force in the third quarter, opening up a double digit lead. After three, OKC is ahead by a score of 74-64.
Kevin Durant came back into the game and heated up considerably in the third, while Russell Westbrook continued to be absolutely dominant, getting to 20 points after three quarters. He's done a great job getting to the line, and he's gone 6-6 from the charity stripe so far. The Hornets and Mavericks are involved in a close game elsewhere, and if the Mavs pull off the win, the Thunder could very well be improving their playoff position.
