BShai Gilgeous-Alexander went berserk in the third quarter against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, practically singlehandedly not only keeping the Oklahoma City Thunder in the game, but putting them ahead going into the final frame.
The day after Gilgeous-Alexander was left off the All-Star team, he posted 21 points in the third quarter alone and capped it by going coast-to-coast in just 4.1 seconds on the final possession of the quarter to beat the buzzer.
By the end of the third quarter, he had already posted 38 points, which set a career high for the third-year guard. The Thunder went up 76-73 on this play that ended the quarter:
Just absurd. He scored 21 of Oklahoma City’s 36 points in the third.
Gilgeous-Alexander finished the third quarter 11-for-17 from the field and had made six of the 10 3-pointers he attempted. He was 10-for-11 from the line, and also contributed seven rebounds and three assists in about 30 minutes of play.
Oklahoma City will try to hold on in the fourth quarter and beat the Spurs, who are without DeMar DeRozan in this game. Tune to FOX Sports Oklahoma to watch the final quarter.
With Gilgeous-Alexander playing the way he is, it’s not something you’ll want to miss.
