In a game against the New York Knicks that started slow offensively, two Oklahoma City Thunder guards broke out for strong performances on that end of the court in the 101-89 victory.

Thunder fans are growing accustomed to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander putting up big numbers. He had a double-double with 25 points and 10 rebounds after he started taking shots at the rim more aggressively in the second half. He picked up 12 of his points in the third quarter on 6-for-7 shooting.

“He’s carrying a heavier load than he’s ever carried,” head coach Mark Daigneault said. “There’s a smoothing process, I think, for that, in terms of when to be aggressive, when to facilitate, when to organize. And I thought tonight he just had an unbelievable balance.”

Here are Gilgeous-Alexander’s full highlights:

Hamidou Diallo had the best performance of his career in his return to his home state in the Madison Square Garden. He had 23 points and 11 boards, and he and Gilgeous-Alexander capped it off with an alley-oop.

“It’s something that I bring to the table,” he said of his energy. “Every given night, I gotta be the most competitive person on the floor and that’s a goal of mine.”
