This sequence from Alperen Sengun in his first week in the league is still one of my favorite Moment cameos. The hand-eye coordination, the awareness, the hustle… different from Day 1. pic.twitter.com/xAK7sDkF2n – 7:28 PM

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will not be with the Thunder at the start of its upcoming road trip. He’ll stick with the Blue for a few more days.
Asked if Lu Dort will play on the upcoming trip, Daigneault said he’s not ruling Dort in or out. – 6:31 PM

Mark Daigneault on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander being an All-Star “I was bathing my son during the announcement, got an alert on my phone” said “really happy obviously for him. When your best worker and most committed guy, or one of, is rewarded for that, I think it’s a strong signal” – 6:27 PM
Mark Daigneault said he was bathing his son when SGA was named an All-Star and heard the news via his phone: “You can’t interrupt bath time for anything.” – 6:26 PM
