Top Performers from the Thunder’s Loss to the Hawks

Standout performers from Oklahoma City's 113-101 loss to Atlanta on Monday night.

Down one young star, Oklahoma City kept the first half of play against the Hawks competitive before stalling in the second for a 113-101 loss.

Despite the double-digit defeat, Oklahoma City had several players step up to the challenge in place of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who was out with a right ankle injury.

Here are the top performers from OKC’s loss to Atlanta:

Josh Giddey

Thunder rookie Josh Giddey was firmly in command of the OKC offense for the first time on Monday, and did a near flawless job of running it.

The Australian finished with 15 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, coming up just shy of being the youngest player ever to record a triple-double. He also nabbed a steal and delivered two blocks.

Giddey shot 6-for-13 from the field, the only low point being that he shot 0-for-5 from beyond the 3-point line.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl

Back in the starting role, Robinson-Earl continued to impress in his debut season.

He poured on 13 points and added 10 rebounds for the double-double.

He also shot 2-for-5 from the 3-point line, continuing to prove he’s a threat from the perimeter.

Ty Jerome

Functioning as Oklahoma City’s sharpshooting sixth man, Ty Jerome finished tied with Lu Dort an Giddey for a team-high 15 points.

He shot 50 percent from the 3-point line and hit all five of his free throw attempts.

He also finished with four assists and nabbed three steals on the defensive end of the court.
