Rewatched the second half:
– Larry played the entire 4Q. Felt like there was a chance to get JV in there somewhere.
– Giddey 3s hurt.
– Trey did some nice stuff off the dribble.
– SGA looks so calm in important moments.
– This was the play of the game. Have to get this rebound. AM

Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
SGA hits a 3, Dort hits a 3, JDub drives to the basket. What a 3-possession sequence by OKC down the stretch. Thunder lead 117-112 with 19.6 secs left – 10:18 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Pelicans go up 112-107 and it looks like the game got away from OKC.
Then Shai GIlgeous-Alexander happened.
SGA offensive board + assist to JDub.
SGA stepback 3 pointer.
SGA steal.
Lu Dort 3.
OKC up 115-112. 1 minute to go. – 10:16 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Think Shai just got away with the most point-blank carry. (Why is it still even in the NBA rule book if it’s that obvious but never called?)
The Thunder wind up hitting a 3 on the possession to go up 115-112. The Pelicans will inbound with 1:01 left. – 10:15 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
What a sequence. Josh Giddey makes an excellent pass to Dort, he misses, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander taps the rebound to Jalen WIlliams for a putback. This is a crazy game. – 10:13 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
The jumper not falling for SGA tonight. Murphy III nails a 3-pointer and gives the Pelicans a 110-107 lead. OKC calls a timeout with 4:24 left in the 4Q – 10:08 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
OKC was up by 20.
Pelicans got it down to 2.
SGA snatches an offensive board and lobs to Chet for a dunk to end a rollercoaster 3rd quarter.
OKC up 96-90 going into the 4th. – 9:51 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
End of 3Q: Thunder 96, Pelicans 90

McCollum – 16 points, 4 assists – 9:49 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
What a lob from SGA to Chet – 9:48 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
That difficult Shai Gilgeous-Alexander middy puts OKC up 15 at intermission. What a 2nd frame from the Thunder. So far, a great response to Sunday night. – 9:08 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Jalen Williams is just incredibly versatile. Him being able to just sit in the corner and sink a catch and shoot triple is such a weapon playing alongside Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. He is shooting 43% on catch and shoot looks this season. – 9:07 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
That was a massive challenge. Not only for the 3-point play, but this put 3 fouls on Herb Jones — the Pels best defender and one of the best matchups in the league for SGA — Jones has wasted 2 fouls on a reach in on Joe and now this one on Dort. – 9:04 PM
Dan Favale @danfavale
antonio daniels on the pels broadcast essentially saying sga has guys in a perpetual state of retreat is just so damn perfect PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Trey Murphy, who does many things well, badly needs to add some physicality to his defensive repertoire. Kenrich Williams drove around him far too easily and then Shai was able to gain separation just as simply for an open jumper inside the lane. – 8:47 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
SGA looks much better in the 2Q. Up to 11 points. Hits a tough jumper and Pelicans call a timeout. Thunder lead 52-44 with 6:26 left in the 2Q – 8:47 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander took a knee to the face from Herb Jones.
Incidental contact. SGA gets up and hits both free throws.
But he might be feeling that one tomorrow. – 8:45 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Sheesh, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander just got knee’d in the face. – 8:42 PM
Dan Favale @danfavale
even sga’s lower-key makes are nasty lmao PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander checks back in at the 2:48 mark and immediately hits his first bucket of the game.
Seems as though Mark Daigneault is trying out some new wrinkles with the rotation. – 8:33 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
Now SGA comes back in with 2:48 left in the 1Q. He replaces JDub and is playing with the bench – 8:30 PM
Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
Hayward checks in for SGA with 6:18 left in the 1Q. Notable decision considering SGA usually plays the entire 1Q – 8:22 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander subs out with 6 minutes left in the 1st quarter.
SGA usually plays the entire first frame. – 8:22 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Thunder starters vs Pelicans
Pelicans + Rockets are 20-3 in March. OKC plays both of them in the next 24 hours. – 7:38 PM
