Australian Josh Giddey scored 21 points and had 10 rebounds in an impressive double-double for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but couldn’t help his team to victory in a 113-121 defeat to the Charlotte Hornets.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 28 points and Lu Dort 22 points for the Thunder, but LaMelo Ball’s 27 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists led the Hornets to power past the Thunder in the second half. However, Giddey’s impressive shooting from the line – a perfect 7-7 – had fans and pundits raving about his upside in that department.
The widely-shared argument is that Giddey could unlock his true scoring potential by attempting to get to the line more frequently.
