Jaylen Hoard recorded 27 points (13-23 FG, 1-4 3PT), 17 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 47 minutes in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
With the Thunder only playing six players, Hoard was able to log heavy minutes and record his third straight 20 plus point game. The rookie has also been a rebounding machine with 67 total rebounds in his last five games. If the Thunder continue to basically not have a bench on Sunday against the Clippers, Hoard will continue to see an expanded role.
