Jerami Grant finished with six points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 27 minutes of action during the Thunder’s loss to the Wolves on Friday night.
Much was made of the Thunder’s signing of Patrick Patterson this offseason and rightfully so as he seemed like an excellent fit. But five games in to the season, it appears Grant is the most trusted member of the Thunder bench. Grant has received more minutes than Patterson in every game this season and has made a real difference with a 12-point game, a seven-rebound game and tonight’s three-block performance. Patterson meanwhile has only made two shots as a member of the Thunder. Perhaps Patterson is just finding his OKC footing but If the minutes continue, Grant is the Thunder bench player to own.
