Giddey is off to a tremendous start this season and is on pace to join some elite company in NBA history as a result.
Rookie guard Josh Giddey added 19 points for the Thunder, who jumped on a weary Nets team to snap a five-game losing streak with their first victory in 2022. But with NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant resting, the Thunder led comfortably for most of the last three quarters and improved to 14-27 at the midpoint of their schedule.

Giddey has emerged as one of the top rookie players but, as the saying goes, there is always room to improve on the court.
