The OKC Thunder managed to pull the stops on Paul George’s return to Oklahoma City. They were lucky playing a Clippers team without Kawhi Leonard but they can be credited with stellar play. The Thunder played the Clippers without Danilo Gallinari but they got great help from Steven Adams who dominated with 20 points, 17 rebounds and three steals. Shai Gileous-Alexander and Dennis Schroeder took care a bulk of the scoring load with a combined 60 points but much has to be credited on the team’s defensive strategies. Going up against the Hornets, they could match up man-to-man easily. It is a homecoming for Chris Paul who started his career with the Hornets as well.

Life after Kemba Walker has been tough since Terry Rozier is having a difficult time filling his void. A great thing that this is the year that Devonte Graham’s coming out year. Against their last game against the Celtics, he had 23 points, ten assists and six-three point shots. Bismack Biyombo is also helping out well as he finished with 18 points but he was expected to grab more rebounds and he just finished with 3 points at the Center position. Cody Zeller has been limited to playing just less than 17 minutes but he is expected to take back that center starting position to match up with Steven Adams.
