All-Star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander showcased his prowess with 36 points, leading the Thunder's dominant second-half performance.

However, his impact transcended the game itself as Holmgren etched his name in NBA history. He became the first rookie ever to accumulate 150+ blocks and 100+ three-pointers in a single season.

With this historic feat, the Thunder's record improved to an impressive 40-17, tying them with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the top seed in the Western Conference. 

Riding an 8-2 streak in their last ten games, the Thunder are currently on a five-game winning spree. The Thunder and Rockets are set for a rematch on Tuesday evening in Oklahoma City. 

The Thunder, boasting a 23-6 home record, will look to maintain their momentum, while the Rockets, now at 25-32 and 12th in the Western Conference, aim to bounce back from a challenging 3-7 stretch in their last ten games. 

The game promises to be another intense clash between these two competitive teams. (SOURCE: Sports Illustrated)
