Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished Saturday’s win over the Rockets with 23 points (9-of-18 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), seven rebounds, six assists, four steals, one blocked shot and three 3-pointers in a game-high 48 minutes.
SGA played 48 out of a possible 53 minutes Saturday and with good reason, as he was one of Oklahoma City’s most effective players on both ends. His minutes tally was also impacted by Billy Donovan’s decision to shorten the rotation, with Dennis Schroder being the only reserve guard to see any playing time. If that remains the case moving forward, look for Gilgeous-Alexander to continue to play well past the 40-minute barrier. And that bodes very well for his fantasy value. Aug 22 9:14 pm (EST)
