Chet Holmgren, a teammate of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, stole the spotlight after an electrifying Game 2 performance by the Thunder guard. 

Gilgeous-Alexander led his team to a commanding 124-92 victory over the Pelicans with a stellar 33-point display. 

In a post-game interview with TNT's Allie LaForce, Holmgren passionately endorsed Gilgeous-Alexander for the NBA MVP title, even grabbing the microphone to emphasize his point.

Despite Gilgeous-Alexander's modest reaction, his performance speaks volumes, with 17 of his 33 points coming in the second half, along with five assists and three rebounds. 

This stellar showing adds to his impressive track record, including a team-leading 28 points in Game 1. The Thunder's Game 2 victory was historic, marking the first time in NBA playoff history that all points were scored by players aged 25 and under. 

Gilgeous-Alexander's regular season performance further solidifies his MVP candidacy, with impressive averages of 30.1 points, 6.2 assists, and 5.5 rebounds per game, guiding the Thunder to the Western Conference's top seed with a 57-25 record. 

While he faces tough competition from Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic for the MVP title, Holmgren's enthusiastic endorsement suggests Gilgeous-Alexander has strong support among his peers.
