The OKC Thunder continue to impress in the bubble, but one player in particular really gave the Thunder an edge in this game.
Off the bench, 20-year-old Darius Bazley showed that he can become more than just a rotational player.
In just 26 minutes, Bazley scored 23 points on 8-13 shooting and 5-8 shooting from deep. He also managed to pull in 7 rebounds.
The Thunder also had a lot of help from veteran Danilo Gallinari. Gallinari scored a solid 20 points on 6-8 shooting and 3-5 from deep.
The Thunder dominated the Wizards, winning 121-103, but the Wizards weren’t as bad as it looked.
Jerome Robinson also had a solid game off the bench. He scored 19 points on 7-15 shooting and 4-9 from deep. The Wizards were officially out of the playoffs after last game, so they’re really just seeing what their young talent can do right now.
The Thunder next play the the Phoenix Suns tomorrow at 2:30 ET
The Wizards next play the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday at 9:00 ET
