Both teams match each others score for the rest of the 1st quarter and the score going into the 2nd quarter is 33-31. The 2nd quarter is when the Thunder lead gets bigger.

The 4th quarter starts with the Clippers cutting the lead down to 2 by going on a 7-0 run. The Thunder answer back again by going on a 10-2 run to get the lead into double digits.

My Prediction

The 1st quarter is neck and neck as neither team gives an edge as the score after the 1st is 28-27 Nuggets on top. The 2nd quarter is when the Bulls take the lead as they go on a 10-2 run to take a 7 point lead. The Nuggets then get the lead down to 2 going into halftime and the score is 56-54. In the 3rd quarter the Nuggets get the lead back by going on a 14-4 run. The Bulls answer back by going on a 8-3 run to cut the Nuggets lead to 3. The 3rd quarter ends with the score 78-75 Nuggets on top. The 4th quarter is like the 1st quarter as neither team gives an edge. The Bulls hit a 3 pointer to tie the game up but the Nuggets come right back and score to take a 2 point lead. With 2 minutes left the Bulls tie the game up on a 15 foot jump shot from Luol Deng. The Nuggets then come right back and score on a 12 foot jump shot from Ty Lawson. With 30 seconds left the Bulls miss their shot to tie the game and the Nuggets get the rebound and hold on for the win.
