The Thunder lost a third consecutive game, again by double digits, dropping the team to 20-30 on the year. This loss, unlike nearly every other prior loss, was a drubbing by a fellow lottery-bound team.

And that’s okay.

At this point in the season, wins are not the goal. Wins are the enemy of a higher draft pick. But the games must be played, so the Thunder are wisely using the remainder of the season to evaluate.
