3 Big Things

  • BBQ Chicken: Nikola Jokic is having an MVP type season, averaging a triple double with 25, 11.4, and 10.3. With Al Horford still missing for personal reasons, Isaiah Roby draws the toughest challenge of his young career. It could get ugly..
  • On The Road again: Typically when a team ends a homestand and takes back to the road it’s considered to be a negative for their chances of winning. The Thunder, however, welcome a change of scenery with a  5-1 away record, while they’re just 1-5 in the ‘Peake.
  • Can Shai keep it up? One person who seemed to enjoy being back home was Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. During the homestand he averaged 23.2, 5.3, and 4.3 on staggering splits of 60/50/80. Who knows how long he can keep up that balance of efficiency and taking over when it’s time, but if Shai can keep up this pace we could be seeing our 11 year streak of All-Star Thunder players continue.
