Mark Daigneault Rumors
Gilgeous-Alexander shot 14-of-21 from the floor, including 2-of-3 from 3-point range. Both of his 3-pointers were cold-blooded step-backs. One that put the Thunder ahead 82-81 in the third quarter, and another that won the game. At least for a little while, it looked like Bradley Beal had drained the game-winner. The Wizards star made a baseline jumper to put Washington ahead 120-118 with 6.1 seconds left. Thunder coach Mark Daigneault called a timeout. “We just wanted to make sure we got (Gilgeous-Alexander) the ball,” Daigneault said.
Clemente Almanza: Mark Daigneault on Tre Mann’s back soreness: “It’s kinda a tricky area… Any movement can kinda trigger it. He’s getting intensive treatment and we’ll get him back as soon as we can.”
Clemente Almanza: Mark Daigneault on Chet Holmgren removing his boot: “His recovery is not behind or ahead of what’s normal. It’s going very well. You’re going to see him do more and more as time goes on. He’s doing a great job of it… He should be really proud the way he’s (rehabbing) so far.”
Rylan Stiles: Mark Daigneault on TNT pulling this game off national television “it certainly doesn’t mean anything to me, but all these experiences are great for the guys” he said when that experience eventually happens for the Thunder it’ll be great for the guys.
