In the upcoming action-packed matchup between OKC and Celtics, all eyes are going to be on these two superstars and how they are able to guide their team glory, Jayson Tatum and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Tatum’s all-around skill is on show, as he averages 27 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game. While he helps on defense with steals, his shot-blocking ability is low.

The Glide has averaged over 31 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game and leads the league in steals showing off his ability to disrupt opponents’ plays. While the Thunder lost the rebounding battle, Gilgeous-Alexander’s talent compensated for the team’s flaws.
