The Thunder are on the board in Orlando, taking down the Nets 98-84 behind 26 from Jeremy Lamb and a strong double-double from future Hall of Famer Mitch McGary. Some thoughts:
- No Steven Adams, no Perry Jones, no Andre Roberson, no Semaj Christon, no Josh Huestis today. I thought the Thunder had started to summer league tank. But I thought wrong!
- The two standouts for OKC on Monday were the two guys you’d hope for: Lamb and McGary. Lamb came out with his shooting boots on, firing up shots just about any time he got an ounce of space. He wasn’t shy, which I guess is good, but Lamb’s issue offensively can sometimes forcing bad shots and not hunting actively enough for the high percentage ones. He hit 8-of-21, and just 2-of-7 from 3, but he did get to the line nine times, which is a very good thing. Lamb too often resisted attacking the paint last season and never really got a hold on drawing fouls. He did well at that today.
