The Oklahoma City Thunder have just entered a three-game losing streak after losing to the New Orleans Pelicans by a wide margin of 33 points, 80-113. The team looks off-tuned with Al Horford being the top scorer with 17 points along with six boards. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander shot only 30% from the field to finish with 8 while Luguentz Dort also had 8 as well. This was a blowout from the very beginning and the Pelicans even rested Zion Williamson early on. Mike Muscala managed to pick up 10 points during garbage time as the entire team looked uninspired coming to this game.
