The Oklahoma City Thunder extended their win streak to two games following a 120-109 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

Although it’s an impressive win, it’s important to include the caveat of Luka Doncic not playing. Regardless, it’s still an impressive win as the Thunder finish their season series against the Mavericks with a 2-1 record.

Per usual, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way with 33 points on 11-of-17 shooting and 11-of-13 from the free-throw line. Gilgeous-Alexander continues to normalize 30-point performances once again in OKC.

Let’s take a look at some of the best photos from the Thunder’s 11-point win over the Mavericks.
