The Thunder are a superteam now. A superteam of superfriends where Alex Abrines gets to not be included along with almost everyone else on his team. I can’t be the only one who misses the old Westbrook one-man-show, can I? For one thing, it meant more touches for Abrines who now finds his touches somewhat lacking.
I feared if I didn’t make these highlights tonight, I wouldn’t get to do Abrines at all this year. He hasn’t been productive at all to start the season, and on a team like the Thunder who have aspirations, that means fewer and fewer minutes. Tonight was a slight reversal of fortunes, a reversal that could mean more minutes or even an acknowledgment from Paul George in the locker room.
