The Thunder never trailed in the game, and went on a 32-13 run spanning the first and second quarters to take control.
OKC led by 19 at halftime, 50-31, then built the lead even more in the third quarter.
Steven Adams had 12 points and 8 rebounds, and Raymond Felton was the fifth Thunder player to score in double figures with 12 off the bench.
The Thunder made 13 3-pointers and forced 19 Bulls turnovers.
Chicago made just 28 percent from the field.
OKC improves to 3-3 on the season and finishes their three-game road trip Tuesday night at Milwaukee at 7:00 pm.
