The Oklahoma City Thunder have now lost 10 games in a row, their second longest streak since their move from Seattle (longest active losing streak), with a 112-106 loss to the Toronto Raptors. While the tank continues to roll on, there have been many, many bright spots.
Lu Dort led the Thunder with 29 points on 9-15 shooting (5-8 on three-pointers). Dort had a phenomenal first quarter with 21 points on 100% shooting. He has shown legitimate all-star potential as the first option on this team.
“I’m doing good, but I want to win,” said Dort after the loss.
Darius Bazley put up another good performance since his return from his fractured scapula with 16 points while going 3-5 from behind the arc.
Aleksej Pokusevski continues to show improvement with a strong performance on both ends. Poku finished with eight points, seven rebounds, six blocks and five assists.
Toronto’s Chris Boucher had a statement game against OKC with 31 points and 12 rebounds (12-16 shooting, 6-9 from three). Gary Trench Jr. added to this with 25 points on 5-10 from three.
Toronto Rookie, Malachi Flynn, also had an impressive performance adding 15 points while shooting 3-5 from behind the arc.
