The Oklahoma City Thunder wrapped up their four-game road trip with a 112-102 win over the Brooklyn Nets, who were without Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons.

The 3-1 road trip has caused fans to focus on the playoffs more than lottery odds as the Thunder own the same record as the 10th-seeded Phoenix Suns.

Josh Giddey scored a career-high 28 points to go along with nine assists and nine rebounds. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander also added 28 points to the win. The young backcourt duo continues to impress.

Let’s take a look at some of the best photos from the Thunder’s 10-point win over the Nets on Sunday.
