Five takeaways from the Thunder's win at the Timberwolves

Bazley and Dort started together for the first time.

Bench points

Bazley and Dort contributed to a 52-20 Thunder bench scoring advantage.

Dennis Schroder led OKC’s reserves with 26 points.

Adams returns

Steven Adams returned to the Thunder starting lineup after missing the last two games with a left ankle sprain. He was scoreless with just one rebound in 23 minutes.

Reserve center Nerlens Noel was out. Noel underwent surgery to repair a fracture to the zygomatic arch in his left cheek, the Thunder announced Saturday.

With Noel out and Justin Patton recently traded away, Adams and Mike Muscala were the Thunder’s only available centers.
