After the Oklahoma City Thunder’s dominant Game 4 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in the conference semifinals, Undisputed host Skip Bayless praised the Thunder’s performance.

During a recent episode of the show ‘Undisputed,’ Bayless discussed Paul Pierce, a former NBA player, and mentioned that Pierce is underestimating what OKC achieved throughout the year. The Thunder won 57 games, leading the NBA, and made a remarkable comeback in the league.

“So Paul Pirce, you are going to be wrong about the OKC Thunder; you’re underestimating what they’ve done all year long. This is who they have been all year long. They won 57 games, most in the West, because this is how they do it; they lead the NBA in double-digit comebacks because that’s what they do.” Skip Bayless said.

Skip Bayless sends high praise for Thunder’s star player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

Skip Bayless also praised Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the star player of the OKC Thunder, for his consistently good performances during the season. Bayless mentioned that Gilgeous-Alexander played the game quietly, opting not to shoot 3-pointers and consistently performing well in the mid-range throughout the game.

“Shai should be the MVP, but he is not. I take nothing away from that big Joker and Denver because he was sensational, obviously… Listen to what Shai has done to lift his team to 57 wins. He just keeps doing it very quietly. He almost does it in the shadows because he does it quietly, even if you are watching him because he doesn’t shoot 3s. He is all mid-range. That was the most mid-range jump shot he had played in the playoffs since LaMarcus Aldridge did it. He is a surgeon from mid-range.” Bayless added.

The Thunder tied the series against the Mavericks in game 4, thanks to Chet Holmgren’s dominating performance. He now joins David Robinson, Alonzo Mourning, and Tim Duncan as the fourth rookie to record at least 120 points, 60 rebounds, and 20 blocks in his first eight postseason games.

Thunder will be back in action in game five against the Mavericks which is scheduled for Thursday at Paycom Center.
