– It’s Spring Jaylen’s Treasure and we all live in it! The Frenchman certainly didn’t stop Oklahoma City from losing in Los Angeles to the Lakers, but he was once again the best player on his team and put in an impressive performance. It’s true that it was a low-cost version of the Lakers (the expensive version wasn’t actually more famous by any means…), but Hoard collected 27 points (his NBA record), 17 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 interception and 1 against, playing 47 minutes out of 48!

Since OKC called him up for the 10-day contract, Jaylen has 17.8 points, 13.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 55.1% overall and 42.1% 3-point shooting. We really hope that soon some team will analyze his case, either for the playoffs or at the beginning of the school year, to integrate a roster where he can express himself and show his qualities for an entire season.

If you missed our interview with Jaylen Hoard, just before this game against the Lakers, she’s still online on the site.
