Off the bench, Isaiah Joe contributed 14 more points. The Thunder shot 54.9%, with 48.7% coming from beyond the arc, which is noteworthy.
Oklahoma City conceded 104 points despite playing strong defense in their opening contest. If they are to win, they will require yet another strong defensive performance.

On Wednesday, the Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 114–113. Notably, the match went back-and-forth, with the Cavaliers and Nets trading leads.

Adding eighteen points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists was Isaac Okoro. Evan Mobley scored ten points, while Darius Garland contributed fifteen.
