Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Made NBA History vs Minnesota

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Made NBA History vs Minnesota

He knows what I'm capable of and challenges me every day. He finished the game with 20 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists in 36 minutes. Shai is now averaging at 19.9 points per game.

"He's tough. He's very tough", Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins said. "He can make a bucket when he needs to".

That performance made Gilgeous-Alexander the youngest player to ever post a 20-rebound triple-double, breaking a 26-year-old record held by Shaquille O'Neal.

SGA joins Russell Westbrook as the only guard with a 20-point, 20-rebound triple-double over the last 30 seasons.

That after Gilgeous-Alexander did not record an assist in 35 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

Entering Monday's contest, Gilgeous-Alexander had no triple-doubles in 121 previous appearances. "That was one of the things that the coach mentioned to us, attacking first". I felt we did that as a group. "When you attack as a group, you feel more comfortable faster".

Both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Minnesota Timberwolves are coming off substantial losses over the weekend. Reid scored in double digits in six of the last eight games.

The Thunder held a 63-60 lead at halftime.

Oklahoma City acquired the Toronto native from the Los Angeles Clippers this past offseason in the Paul George blockbuster deal. "We had some action, had some really good ball movement, had some great clips offensively. I thought it was critical".

He is in the top three in points, rebounds, assists and steals for the Thunder and the team is on fire. Minnesota scored just 19 points in the third.

Dennis Schroder and Terrance Ferguson both scored 14 points and both made two 3-pointers. "I was happy with some of the boys".

Nerlens Noel is listed as out for the Thunder's game Monday night against the Timberwolves. Guard / attacker Andre Roberson (recovery knee injury) still has to play this season.

While James took control with 12-for-16 shooting, Howard capped another outstanding game in his bounce-back season with his ninth career 3-pointer in the fourth quarter.

I've been a sports fan since 1991 after I watched Michael Jordan play for the first time and a sports writer for over 10 years. Oklahoma City has been one of the hottest teams over the past five weeks and since beating the Timberwolves in overtime on December 6, the Thunder have gone 14-5 with wins streaks of four and five games. Forward Jake Layman missed his 25th straight game with a left toe sprain.
