Despite playing the last four contests with a broken thumb, Morant erupted in Saturday's loss to the Trail Blazers. He scored a career-high 35 points with eight assists and four rebounds in 42 minutes. "I can say I'm disappointed, definitely, with losing," Morant said. "Nobody likes to lose. But I mean, the positive side, we know we were right there. Just were two games away [from the playoffs]. So, we know we just go back to work and just get ready for next season." His broken right thumb did not slow him down, he averaged 22.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 10.3 assists and 1.5 injuries across four games with the injury. The 21-year-old is the favorite to win ROY, and expected to be fully recovered in time for the 2020-21 campaign.
