Thunder vs. Pacers Recap

Thunder Pacers recap

The Thunder won against the Pacers away from home. The final score was 129-125 and this high-scoring affair included multiple good games from the Thunder side. Getting back in the win column was just what this team needed after going through another losing streak. Here is the recap for Friday’s Thunder vs. Pacers game.

Isaiah Roby Performance

Roby has been playing much better lately after being reinserted into the rotation. This time, he went back into the starting lineup and performed well. He put up ten points, 11 boards and four dimes on 3/6 from the field and 4/4 from the free throw line. Roby has been stuffing the stat-sheet lately as well, averaging 8.5 points, 0.5 threes, 5.7 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks on 42% from the field and 60% from the line over the last month. The percentages are much to be desired. However, he’s playing much better plus he’s starting to show the stat-stuffing ways OKC fans grew accustomed to last season. Expect a strong finish for the young forward.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Performance

Gilgeous-Alexander had a phenomenal game (as if he never has phenomenal games). He finished with a team-high 36 points, eight boards, five dimes, three steals, two blocks, and seven turnovers on 13/24 from the field, 1/5 from three and 9/12 from the free throw line. The high turnovers were very sloppy on his part, but he still willed his team a nice victory away from home. Over the last two games since he’s been back, he’s been averaging 34 points, five rebounds, five assists, 1.5 steals, 1.0 blocks and 6.5 turnovers a game on 57% from the field and 78% from the line. Expect the big dog to have a strong finish. Unless he suffers from injuries or has random rest days, he’s going to be a beast down the stretch.

Tre Mann Performance

Mann has been playing great basketball lately, putting up another 22 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals, and zero turnovers on 8/17 from the field, 3/6 from three and 3/4 from the line. Mann has been playing like h’s on a mission right now and that mission is to remain in the starting lineup. Over the last two weeks, he’s been averaging 21.8 points, 4.3 boards, 3.8 assists, two steals, and just 0.3 turnovers a game on 49% from the field and 80% from the line. He’s going to remain a big part of this rotation for the foreseeable future. Expect Mann to continue playing high minutes until Lu Dort comes back.

Darius Bazley Performance

Bazley started off on a very bad note for most of the year and started performing well off the bench. This time around, Bazley put up 14 points, ten boards and three steals on 6/16 shooting from the field, 1/4 from three and 1/2 from the line. The guy still can’t shoot to save his life, but at least he stuffs the stat sheet on a nightly basis. Over the last month, he has been averaging 12.9 points, 8.1 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks on 41% from the field and 69% from the line. If Bazley can shoot the ball efficiently, this guy would be a premier three and D player but unfortunately, he just can’t hit the broad side of a barn on most nights. He’s still getting good minutes so hopefully he can do good for the rest of the season.
