NBA: Thunder defeat Warriors on another big night for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

In another overtime forced by rookie Chet Holmgren, the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Golden State Warriors 138-136 this Friday on the day of the NBA.

The basketball league held a 13-game day before the break it will experience this weekend due to the dispute on Saturday of the final of the new Cup tournament between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Indiana Pacers in Las Vegas (Nevada).

The most exciting duel took place on the Thunder court, where their young figures once again emerged victorious against the veteran leaders of the Warriors.

Canadian guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 38 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 blocks against Stephen Curry, who did what he could to keep Golden State afloat with 34 points and 6 triples.

Chet Holmgren, Wembanyama’s great rival for the Rookie of the Year award, finished with 21 points and 7 rebounds but once again starred in the decisive action as in the victory against the Warriors on November 18, when he nailed a three-pointer from the corner at the buzzer. that sent that clash to extra time.

This time the tall center, 2.16m tall, received a personal foul from Draymond Green with seven seconds remaining and had the nerve to convert the three free throws that tied the game at 118.

Curry missed a desperate three-pointer and the game was decided in overtime in which the young Thunder overwhelmed the Warriors with speed and power.
