Shai Gilgeous-Alexander left MSG on Friday with a season-high 25 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, three 3-pointers, one block and a road win vs. the Knicks. In addition to the copious counting stats, SGA was efficient with 9-of-14 shooting (3-of-3 from deep). His 4.7 rebounds per game are significantly down from last year's 5.9, but that's mostly a function of the small sample size -- and it'll leap after tonight's season-best effort on the glass. He was coming off a game with five steals on Wednesday, too, and it's only a matter of time before he's piling up early-round value as the focal point for this rebuilding OKC team.

Kyrie Irving (personal reasons) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Thunder. Irving did not travel with the Nets to Friday's game in Memphis due to the personal issues, and it is unknown if he will be available Sunday night. If not, Caris LeVert and Joe Harris will have the ball in their hands even more. Brooklyn could also have Kevin Durant (health and safety protocols) back, which would more than help the Nets account for the absence of Irving.
