Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s Career Night Helps End Thunder 8 Game Losing Streak

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s Career Night Helps End Thunder 8 Game Losing Streak

Oklahoma City – The Thunder were on the road again in Detroit facing the Pistons and looked to
end their 8 game losing streak in the process.
The last time we saw the Thunder they had a NBA record 73 point loss to the Grizzlies so they
had extra motivation to come out and play well tonight. In that game though, they were
missing Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Josh Giddey, Kenrich Williams, and Derrick Favors and all were
back tonight so things should have been better.
The Pistons also came into the game with an 8 game losing streak so both had extra motivation
to win this game.
Most people wanted and thought the Thunder would come out and show they aren’t the team
that lost by 73 points the other night.
That did not happen. They came out flat on defense and allowed the Pistons to have their best
1st quarter of the season. It continue into the 2nd where the Thunder got down by 18 and into
the 3rd when they got down by 16. Luckily, the bench led by Kenrich Williams ignited the team
and they were able to complete a comeback
The Thunder had their best quarter of the season tonight scoring 42 points on a blistering 17-19
from the floor. Their defense also returned after a hiatus and held the Pistons to 40 points in
the 2nd half. That was a welcomed sight after their last 7 quarters of play.
Thunder ended the game on a 23-6 run to win 114-103.
