Description: Three games, three wins, and the Oklahoma City Thunder became the second team in the NBA to reach 40 wins. More importantly, they beat the first team to reach 40 wins, the Chicago Bulls, by 14, holding the Bulls to just 78 points. Chicago was without Derrick Rose, but the Thunder dominated from the start, leading by as many as 30 in the fourth quarter. This leaves the Thunder just one game back for the best record in the NBA as they're just hitting their stride. Look out.—Russ Bengtson
