10. Thunder 27-18 (8)

Worse still, they allowed the League to attack the 29th Hawks with a 62% shooting percentage. In the past seven games, the Thunder team has won 2 games and lost 5 games. One of the reasons is that the substitutes did not perform well. In 209 minutes when at least one substitute was present, the team lost nearly 132 points per 100 rounds. Ferguson has brought firepower to the team in the past two weeks, scoring 22 of 40 three-point shots.

Zubats was the best performer in his career when he beat the Thunder. The Lakers scored 115.5 points per 100 rounds in the past three games. As the offense progressed, the Lakersdefense retreated. Bauer had a very good performance in extra time in Russia City. Ingram scored a lot of key goals for the team in Houston. Unfortunately, Pops three-pronged attitude affected the team. Losing to the Rockets not only dropped the Lakers out of the top eight, but also lost Bauer, which was a bigger blow.
