Lu Dort had the hottest hand in the Oklahoma City Thunder Game 7 showdown with the Houston Rockets. The undrafted rookie dropped 30 points to record the best performance by a player 21 or younger in Game 7.

He surpassed LeBron James, who had scored 27. Dort’s 30 points are the most for an undrafted rookie in a playoff game, while he had the third-best performance on a Game 7 for OKC.

Dort, who started the season in the G-League, made James Harden’s life difficult in the defensive side, while he had some incredible shot-making moments for the Thunder.

He recorded 30 points with 4 rebounds shooting 50% from beyond the arc and 47.6% from the field in Game 7 against the Houston Rockets
