Meet Mitch McGary. The OKC big man from Michigan had a break-out game against the Clippers yesterday by scoring 19 points on 8 of 9 shooting and grabbing 10 boards in just 23 minutes.

“I’m a pretty energetic guy, so usually the crowd gets into it,” he said. “I always hear loud fans cheering when I enter the game, even when I don’t score or anything like that. I ended up having a good game, and all I could do was get the crowd into it even more.”

Mitch has played in just 2 games this season due to injuries and had just a total of 3 points and 4 rebounds.

“You see how much work he put in over the past month-and-a-half, two months of recovering and getting himself back in,” Westbrook said. “To see him get an opportunity was very exciting.”
