Gabriel Deck played his fourth game in the NBA and showed that he meets the necessary conditions to establish himself in the most competitive basketball league in the world.

He had the best start from the substitutes' bench:

16 points

in the first 11 minutes of action, including his first triple in the Oklahoma City Thunder.

To gain dimension, Manu Ginobili, the maximum Argentine reference in the NBA, retiring from San Antonio Spurs in 2018 with four rings,

took 46 games

to achieve 16 points in the same night.

For this reason, despite the

Thunder's

narrow defeat

against the Sacramento Kings by 103-99, the Santiago native continues to establish himself in the American franchise, where he has a four-year contract but only the first of them guaranteed;

that is to say that the total fulfillment of the same will depend on its performance.


At the Chesapeake Energy Arena, the Argentine added

16 points

(5-6 in free practice, 4-6 in doubles and 1-1 in triples),

three assists, three defensive rebounds and a steal

in 16 minutes on the floor.

In this way, he was the

second leading scorer

in the franchise led by Mark Daigneault, only behind Darius Bazley, who closed his night with 24 points, 11 rebounds and three assists.

In contrast, Lu Dort continues to fight with the rim and made 3-16 from the field, for which he accumulates a total of 7-35 in his last two games.

“16 points in 11 minutes.

He's like crazy!

”, Ginobili highlighted on his official Twitter account.

Now he stepped back and jump shot.

For his part, Andrés Nocioni tweeted: “The level of confidence and calm with which Tortu Deck is playing these games is surprising.

He has personality, character

, he goes to the front.

forever.

Love it".

And he added: "Tortuga does not need to ask much for the ball. Sooner or later they end up giving it to him. His ease of scoring in any context is already absurd. There are few Argentine players in history who have had such

goal-scoring power

in their hands." .

He's like crazy!
