Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Leads Thunder to Victory with Dominant Performance Against Timberwolves

Oklahoma City took the lead in the first four minutes and maintained it. The Timberwolves tried to catch up, but Luguentz Dort’s 3-pointers started a 9-1 run for the Thunder. Gilgeous-Alexander dominated the third quarter with 14 points and three assists as the Thunder grabbed a 15-point lead. Gilgeous-Alexander made all seven field-goal tries in the quarter.

Gilgeous-Alexander scored 34 points, nine assists, and six rebounds on 14-of-19 shooting, including 14 of 16 from the arc. Timberwolves coach Chris Finch substituted when the Thunder’s lead reached 19 points in the opening six minutes of the fourth quarter.

Three players helped the Thunder tie their season-high field-goal percentage at 60.5%. Jalen Williams scored 21, Luguentz Dort and Chet Holmgren 20. Both teams were known for their defense, therefore the high-scoring game surprised me.
