On Friday, November 10, the Oklahoma City Thunder (5-3) will go to Sacramento, California, to play the Sacramento Kings (3-4) at the Golden 1 Center.
Without De’Aaron Fox, the Kings have collapsed and are now 1-3 since his injury. Their lone victory came against the severely injured Trail Blazers on Wednesday in overtime. During this time, Sacramento has also lost two landslide games to the Rockets. This season, Fox has an outstanding offensive rating for the Kings (121.3), but when he’s not on the court, that rating falls to only 103.1. While all was going on, forward Domantas Sabonis filled in for Fox, going into the win over Portland with 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists. Malik Monk had 23 points off the bench as well, but he was only 4 for 16 from the field and 0 for 7 from beyond the arc. The Kings are making 72.3% of their free throws and 32.5 percent of their shots from beyond the arc and they are pulling down 44 rebounds per game.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, point guard for Oklahoma City, is developing into the next big NBA star. After averaging 31.4 points per game the previous year, he is now averaging 28.1 points, 7 rebounds, 6.4 assists, in his first 7 games this season. In his most recent four games, he has registered at least 30 points three times, including his 43-point performance against the Cavaliers on Wednesday. The Thunder are in high spirits in Oklahoma City following their thrilling victory over the Cavaliers. Even though they have played the sixth-most challenging schedule thus far this season, the Thunder have begun 5-3.
Additionally, big player Chet Holmgren has made progress in his debut NBA season. With just under 8 rebounds per game and double-doubles in two of his previous four games, Holmgren is currently tied with Jalen Williams for 2nd place on the team in scoring.
