Game Recap: Thunder 102, Cavaliers 129
When it got a clean shot attempt at the rim, the Thunder’s offense was efficient on Thursday against Cleveland, but some giveaways on offense and a Cavaliers spurt spanning halftime was the difference in OKC’s loss on the second night of a back-to-back.
As the Thunder’s home stand has gone along, the starts for head coach Mark Daigneault’s group have gotten better and better. In terms of progress, those are the small types of battles the Thunder is looking to make strides with on a daily basis. On Thursday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, even in the second game of a back-to-back, the Thunder had the energy to start, ripping off a 7-0 burst behind 5 quick points from Théo Maledon.
Thanks to some great playmaking from Maledon and Kenrich Williams, who matched a career-high with nine assists for the second-straight game, seven different players scored in double-figures in the game for the Thunder. That’s the sixth time that’s happened this season and it was also the 21st time OKC has had six players score in double-figures this season.
