Oklahoma City came out strong and never looked back. The first haft was relatively low scoring, thanks to 12 free throws combined for both squads. In the second-half, OKC ran away with this scrimmage as Brad Stevens held out Boston’s starters for the remaining 20 minutes. The moment of the afternoon transpired with 5:33 to go in the third as Andre (The Great) Roberson made his long-awaited and sometimes questioned return to the Thunder lineup.

Steven Adams shined in the first-half scoring 17 points, and both he and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished tied as the games leading scorers with 17 apiece. From the opponent’s side, the C’s never picked it up from the foul line as they finished with only 10 foul shot attempts and only a single Celtic – Enes (still a Stache Bro) Kanter scored in double-figures with 11. All in all it was great to have Thunder basketball back, but it was even better to see Dre back on the hardwood.

Next up is the Sixers on Sunday at 11:00 AM. Both teams are currently undefeated inside the bubble.
