The Thunder dropped to 0-2 in Orlando with an 84-73 loss to the 76ers on Sunday. This (summer league) team’s championship window appears to be closing. The panic button, you can push it. Some thoughts:
- Both Jeremy Lamb and Mitch McGary sat this one because of rest.
- Perry Jones didn’t have a strong statistical game — nine points on 3-11 shooting including 2-8 from 3 — but I continue to like the apparent growth he’s had. He just looks… assertive. His handle looks improved to me and he’s using it. He’s attacking off the catch and driving hard at defenders. He’s not a “knockdown shooter” as Isiah Thomas called him, but he can make an open look.
