Shai Gilgeous-Alexander set a new career-high in minutes (43) and tied his career-high in points (24) on Friday as the Clippers leaned on him heavily amid injuries to their veteran players.
Danilo Gallinari played just eight minutes and had one point and three rebounds to his name before leaving the game with lower back spasms. Lou Williams was also a DNP thanks to a sore right hamstring. Both injuries opened up a window for SGA to shine and deliver his 24-point night (10-of-10 from the line), with three rebounds, five assists and three steals. Should the Clipper vets miss more time, expect to see much more of SGA moving forward.
