SGA steps up with big fourth-quarter run:

As we come to the last top game from SGA this season perhaps this one shows more of his ability to never give up even when his shot isn’t falling.

Head Coach Billy Donovan touched on this throughout the year saying that it is good for Shai to experience adversity so that he is able to find ways to overcome it, making him a stronger player.

Going up against the Portland Trail Blazers on December 8th, the Canadian was 1 of 7 from the field through the first three-quarters of the match.

But going into the last frame he turned on a switch and scored 14 points to help orchestrate a 108-96 triumph alongside CP3 and Dennis Schroder.

It was a stellar display as SGA finished with 21 points, nine rebounds, three assists, a steal, and went nine from12 at the free-throw line.

He didn’t let early struggles define his night and made it his mission to help get the Thunder on track to win.

This season so far has allowed us to see just how good Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is. He hasn’t tried to be anyone but himself and has remained determined and done his best to play consistent basketball.
