The Thunder snapped their three game losing streak last night, defeating the Raptors at home. On the one hand, OKC really needed a confidence builder after losing three consecutive games to legit playoff teams. On the other hand, their win was against the lowly Raptors, who lost their best player for most of the game.
Perhaps the biggest positive to take away from the game was the fact that the Thunder bench played well after recent struggles. To be sure James Harden's performance alone is a huge part of that, but on the whole, the Thunder are so much more dynamic when all five guys on the court are an offensive threat. It was good to see Daequan Cook in particular with extended minutes in the game, and for his teammates to start looking for him again for shot attempts.
