OKC snatches victory against the Knicks

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s basket (19 points and 3 assists) with 2.6 seconds left gives the guests the victory and sends OKC to the playoffs for the first time since 2020. The Thunder advance to Madison Square Garden led by an amazing Jalen Williams and they win a wild race characterized by continuous overtaking and counter-overtaking. Jalen Brunson keeps the Knicks in the game once again with his 30 points and 7 assists, but misses the decisive shot right at the sound of the final siren.

Not that further confirmation was needed, but the Thunder’s success in New York also reaffirms that a star is born in OKC. Williams finished as best on the pitch by playing a 33-point game shooting 14/18 from the field and also adding 8 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks to a performance that adds to a regular season in which the former Santa Clara has made a leap forward that is in many ways astonishing.
