NBA – Relegated to the end of the Suns bench, Dario Saric is on the revival in Oklahoma City. To definitely forget his serious injury in 2021…
Author of 12 points at 4/6 on shots, plus 5 rebounds and 1 interception in the big victory (133-96) against the Rockets, the Croatian international had a good start in his new colors.
“I thought it was good”underlines Mark Daigneault in The Oklahoman. “He’s playing the right way. He has a very good sense of the game. He’s just a guy you don’t need to coach. He understood what we wanted to do. He just plays basketball and finds the solutions as he goes. »
In the midst of a descent into hell since his cruciate ligament injury during the 2021 NBA Finals with the Suns, Dario Saric is gradually trying to climb the slope.
After a white season and a very complicated start to the campaign in Arizona this year (his worst career season at an average of 5 points in 14 minutes of playing time), this transfer to Oklahoma City sounds like a golden opportunity for “Super Dario “.
“Guys will love to play with him”
Still in the recovery phase, he’s a smart bet for Sam Presti and the Thunder, as he’s out of contract anyway. If he is still struggling to regain his former level, as illustrated by his disappointing performances
with his national team during the last EuroBasket (only 9 points and 7 rebounds on average), Dario Saric will have more opportunities to play in the young squad of the Thunder.
A young team with an international flair that welcomed him with open arms. What to restore his morale.
“I like his game” says Australian point guard Josh Giddey. “He’s a smart inside, who can stretch the defenses for us. He is imposing. He can do a lot for our team. I was really happy when I learned that he was coming to our house. The guys love it and they’ll love playing with it. »
Why not rediscover sensations? As a reminder, Dario Saric was still shooting 11 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists for his first year with the Suns, only three years ago!
