Thunder look to maintain defense vs. Bulls

Having lost three of their last four games, the Oklahoma City Thunder were in need of some positive momentum Saturday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.

They got it, thanks in large part to their play on the defensive side, forcing 26 turnovers in a 110-104 win.

Heading into Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls at Chesapeake Energy Arena, the Thunder are looking to keep up their strong play on the defensive end, but Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan said it's not just about keeping up gaudy takeaway numbers.
