CHICAGO — Oklahoma City went to Kevin Durant in the fourth quarter. Chicago was missing its best closer, so all the Bulls had to pitch in.
Durant and Co. were just too much to overcome.
The NBA scoring champion had eight of his 24 points in the final period and the Thunder beat the Bulls 97-91 on Thursday night.
“It was one of those games you have to grind out,” Durant said. “We’ve been through so many. We know what it takes.”
