The Thunder avoided late game fiascos, losing to the Magic 118-107. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (27 points [8-10, 3-3 from 2], 7 rebounds, 7 assists) was in complete control, making his first handful of shots all while picking his spots on the floor and creating open looks for his teammates. Isaiah Roby (19 points [10-12, 1-2], 7 rebounds) burst onto the scene in place of the resting Al Horford, showing some fancy footwork around the basket and sitting Nikola Vucevic on his butt off a jab step before hammering home a ridiculous dunk. The bench scored 36, led by Hamidou Diallo (13 points, 8 rebounds) and Mike Muscala (14 points [5-6, 4-5]). Lu Dort (15 points [6/14, 3/8]) came back down to earth a bit, but was still able to post a respectable percentage from deep. OKC is back in action Thursday when they visit their old mate Steven Adams in New Orleans.
