Shining against the Suns:

Another milestone night for SGA came on December 20th when he went off for a career-high against the Phoenix Suns.

The guard led the OKC Thunder to a massive 126-108 victory with a game-high 32 points, four rebounds, three assists, and a steal on 72.2 percent shooting from the field.

SGA was magnificent winning the battle against Devin Booker. He was cutting past defenders with ease, spinning his way to the basket, and causing problems for the Suns all game.

No matter how many defenders were on him, he found ways to maneuver past them. It’s quite a unique way of playing because unlike some players who would prefer to take a long jumper instead of traveling through congestion, Shai embraces it.

As witnessed in this game against the Phoenix when it’s working for him, he will continue to dominate his opponents. The artistry of SGA and his ability to think on the spot is outstanding and he fully demonstrated that creativity in this game.
