The All-Star buzz for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been growing all season. His best moments are starting to match his already astronomical numbers.
The Thunder's star guard made his latest argument for national recognition on Monday, draining the game-winning baseline jumper to give Oklahoma City the 123-121 victory over Portland as time expired.
The shot capped a 35-point night for Gilgeous-Alexander, who ranks third in the league in scoring, fourth in free throw attempts and fifth in points in the paint.
