The Thunder got their top players back on Wednesday, and also got back to their losing summer league ways, getting smacked by the Pacers 94-71. Some thoughts about a game I really hope you didn’t waste your afternoon watching:
- Jeremy Lamb hasn’t played very well — except for one game — but I wouldn’t judge him based on three summer league games. His total shooting numbers are ugly, just made worse by today’s 4-of-17 effort. And even grosser, he went 1-of-9 from 3. The very astute Mrs. DT made a good point about Lamb while we were watching today’s game: He looks like the kind of player that basketball has always come easy to him. Probably the best player in middle school and high school, at every pickup game he’s every played in, and for the most part, in college too. But the NBA isn’t so easy for him. And I think that frustrates him. Basketball is supposed to be simpler than this for Lamb.
