Scores 13 points off bench Jerome delivered 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and a steal across 29 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 87-78 loss at Dallas.
Impact Jerome didn't make his Thunder debut until last week after an ankle injury sidelined him earlier in the season before he spent some time at the G League bubble in Orlando, but he appears to have at least temporarily locked down a spot as the team's backup point guard. In his three appearances to date, Jerome is averaging 12.3 points, 3.7 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.0 steals in 27.0 minutes per game. For now, Theo Maledon remains locked in as the Thunder's starting point guard, but the inconsistency he's shown thus far in his stint on the top unit could open the door for Jerome to unseat him if he continues to thrive off the bench.
