The Oklahoma City Thunder have been building a future through drafting and they’ve fully been focused on giving their young players a chance to shine this season.

Aleksej Pokusevski has been of those prospects and he’s shown once again what he’s capable of in Oklahoma’s 113-102 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

The young Serbian shot 7-11 from the three-point territory on his way to 25 points while also adding nine rebounds and four assists.

He was joined in the efforts by another European who got to the NBA from the latest Draft – Theo Maledon. The French guard also banked in 25 points while dishing five assists and grabbing five rebounds as well.

Two more Europeans showed up in the game with Jaylen Hoard scoring 13 and Svi Mykhailiuk 12 points.
