I made a prediction before the season started that’s looking pretty good right now. Just call me Nostrabuckus. I predicted that Anthony Morrow would be the Thunder’s second-leading scorer with Durant out.
I say only “pretty good” because it turns out that he’s their leading PPG scorer, being not content with merely second place. He was a seriously underrated part of the Pelicans last year and he’s going to show his stuff as a featured dude with the Thunder.
28 points in his first game coming back from injury, I’m impressed. I know I’m overreacting, but I think his presence significantly lifts the Thunder. Not so that they become a good team or anything, but enough that they should get some wins for Durant and his crying momma.
