Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Talks Trash To Magic Fans After Hitting Clutch Shot

Over the past few seasons, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has become one of the league’s newest talents and elevated his team to the top of the Western Conference.

Tuesday, the Thunder defeated the reliable Orlando Magic 127-113 while playing on the road. They regained control in the third quarter, with Gilgeous-Alexander scoring 32 points, dishing out five assists, stealing two steals, and blocking one shot in addition to Jalen Williams’ 33 points.

When he hit a baseline shot with just over two minutes to go in the fourth quarter, he yelled at the Magic fans in attendance to “go home.”

Gilgeous-Alexander is shooting 37.1 percent from three-point range and 54.6 percent from the field this season while averaging 31.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. Reaching the free throw line and making the basket are two of his best attributes; he averages 9.1 attempts per game from the charity stripe and converts 88.3 percent of them.

However, he’s also becoming into a formidable opponent. With 2.2 steals per game and 0.9 blocks per game, the 6-foot-6, 25-year-old is leading the NBA. This is impressive for a guard, especially one under 200 pounds.

Oklahoma City is only one game behind the top-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves in the Western Conference with a 37-17 record. The squad is being referred to be a championship candidate by more and more people, and even with a fairly young roster, it will be a formidable opponent in the postseason.

Gilgeous-Alexander will get the chance to show off his skills more than ever this weekend as he will be starting in the NBA All-Star Game for the first time ever.
