PG, Oklahoma City Thunder


After a slow start, CP3 put in a vintage performance to silence the Suns crowd tonight. Chris Paul scored 20 points, dished 10 assists and even added 3 steals to his totals. He is a deserving All-Star and played like it tonight, he has earned it this year by being the leader of this fun and exciting team.


G/F, Oklahoma City Thunder


Shai had a tough time finding his shot tonight but overall played a solid game. He scored 12 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and had 4 assists. He shot the ball poorly, but he showed the aggressiveness that his taken his game to higher levels so far this season.


PG, Oklahoma City Thunder


Another solid night for the surprising rookie Lu Dort tonight. In his return to Arizona, Dort played hard nosed defense and scored eight points before sitting a lot of the game due to foul trouble. The OKC Thunder have only lost one game when he starts – –  just saying.


PF, Oklahoma City Thunder


Fantastic game from Danilo Gallinari tonight. He scored a team-high 27 points and routinely scored the ball at will against the Suns. He is by far the OKC Thunder’s most impressive offensive player.


C, Oklahoma City Thunder


So-so game tonight from Steven Adams. He was plagued with foul trouble all evening and never really got into a rhythm throughout the match. The big kiwi scored eight points on the evening for the OKC Thunder.
