Monday Bolts: 10.28.19
The Thunder notched their first win of the season last night, pummeling the Golden State Warriors. Brandon Rahbar has your recap.
Twitter wasn’t too kind to the Warriors. And this article from Yahoo! Sports was at halftime.
On the other hand, the weekend got started with a loss to the previously-winless Wizards:
Joe Mussatto (The Oklahoman) gave his five takeaways from the loss.
Chris Paul shouldered the blame for the loss to the Wizards. “If I would have contributed at all we would have won the game, and that’s something, and you can’t sugar coat it.”
Albert Dadson (Hoops Habit) says it’s clear which players will be shouldering the scoring load for the Thunder. Spoiler alert: one of the guys is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who set career highs his first two games.
Erik Horne (The Athletic) thinks SGA can make an impact sooner rather than later.
In other news, Russell Westbrook moved to second all-time in career triple doubles, surpassing Magic Johnson. Congrats to the Brodie.
Something to think about: Three games in, Chris Paul has barely made an impact for the Thunder. Is Paul yielding the floor to the Thunder’s young players or is it something else?
