Gilgeous-Alexander displays exceptional scoring show:

It seems this is a list full of historic accomplishments and startling stats. Gilgeous-Alexander had the best shooting game of his young career against the Detroit Pistons on March 4th.


With 27 points on 80 percent shooting (12-15) SGA was a master with the basketball in hand. He let the game come to him and it seemed like everything around him had slowed down.

He punished defenders with his speed and worked great off the screen. The guard rarely gets flustered and showed how he can control the ball with confidence as well as put his body on the line when he’s driving to the hoop.

SGA put on a majestic performance that showed his true scoring prowess. It was a reflection of how he is able to bounce back from a loss just like the Thunder had before this game against the Clippers. He scored 15 points in that matchup with 58.3 percent from the floor but turned it around in Detroit.
