The Oklahoma City Thunder picked up its 10th win of the season on Saturday night vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander filled up the stat sheet in the 120-118 victory, scoring 31 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists.
The Wolves had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds, but a turnaround shot from Naz Reid caught iron, and SGA secured the game-clinching rebound. Time ran out before Minnesota was able to foul.
Seven Thunder players scored in double figures: SGA, Mike Muscala (22), Hamidou Diallo (15), Darius Bazley (13), Lu Dort (10), Kenrich Williams (10) and Theo Maledon.
OKC scored 83 points in the first half, setting record for the most points scored in the first half in franchise history. The Thunder were able to hold on for the win despite scoring just 37 points in the second half.
Oklahoma City was without Al Horford tonight because it was the second night of a back-to-back.
The Thunder will now travel to Los Angeles for two games with the Lakers. Their next contest is on Monday at 9 p.m. CT.
