Thunder's Georgios Kalaitzakis: Scores 25 in 45 minutes
Kalaitzakis provided 25 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds, six assists and three steals across 45 minutes during Friday's 120-101 loss to the Lakers.
The Thunder only used six players, and with Isaiah Roby picking up five fouls in 14 minutes, it was essentially a five-man rotation for much of the night. Kalaitzakis was one of five players who saw at least 43 minutes of action. His final stat line was far and away the best of his career. Prior to this week, he'd never played more than 13 minutes in an NBA game. He'll likely see big minutes again in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Clippers.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Georgios Kalaitzakis: Puts up 17 points in win

The rookie made nine appearances with the Bucks earlier this season, and this was his debut with the Thunder, but there's no question he made a good impression. With only a few games left in the schedule, Kalaitzakis might very well remain a starter until the Thunder season is over.... See More ... See Less

Thunder's Georgios Kalaitzakis: Joins Thunder
The Thunder signed Kalaitzakis to a 10-day contract Tuesday, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
The 60th overall pick in last summer's draft, Kalaitzakis made the Milwaukee roster out of training camp, but he was waived in early December after appearing in nine contests for the Bucks and averaging 1.8 points in 5.3 minutes per game. The 23-year-old wing then caught on with the Thunder's G League affiliate, and he'll now make his way to the parent club for the final week of the season while Oklahoma City is without several players due to injury. Since the Thunder have only nine other healthy players available for Tuesday's game against Portland, Kalaitzakis could find himself in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
