Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 35 points on Friday

On Friday, the Oklahoma City Thunder played host to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it was a game to remember for Thunder point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

The young Canadian had a career-night, scoring 35 points to help lead the Thunder to a 112-100 victory.

Gilgeous-Alexander was on fire from the start, scoring 15 points in the first quarter alone.

He continued to pour it on throughout the game, hitting jumpers, layups, and even a couple of three-pointers.

By the end of the night, he had made 13 of his 21 field goal attempts and was an impressive 7-for-9 from beyond the arc.

The performance was a career-high for Gilgeous-Alexander, who is in his third season in the league.

It was also the highest scoring game by a Thunder player this season, and it helped the team to secure a much-needed victory.

The Thunder had been struggling coming into Friday's game, having lost five of their last seven contests.

However, they were able to turn things around against the Cavaliers, thanks in large part to Gilgeous-Alexander's scoring outburst.

In addition to his scoring, Gilgeous-Alexander also contributed five rebounds and four assists.

He also played a key role on defense, helping to contain Cavaliers star Collin Sexton, who finished with just 15 points on 5-of-17 shooting.

The victory was a total team effort, but Gilgeous-Alexander was undoubtedly the star of the show.

His 35 points were a season-high for any player in the league and the Thunder's win put them in a better spot for the playoffs.

The Thunder's next game is against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday, and Gilgeous-Alexander will look to continue his scoring streak.

He and his teammates will have to continue to play well if they want to make the playoffs this year.

The game was a total team effort, but Gilgeous-Alexander was undoubtedly the star of the show, and the Thunder will look to continue this winning streak in their next game.
