On a rebuilding Oklahoma City team, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is going to be the guy with the ball in his hands with the game on the line.
That worked out pretty well for the Thunder on Saturday. Gilgeous-Alexander took the ball off the inbounds with 9.7 seconds left in the game, pushed the ball up, pulled up from 23 feet and drained the game-winner.

That bucket saved a Thunder team that had blown a 13-point lead in the final 1:50 of the game. Charlotte’s Miles Bridges took over late for Charlotte and scored 11 of his 14 points in the final 1:06 — including a pair of threes in the final :30 seconds that had made it a game.
