Lamb, Defense Leads OKC To Win Over Philadelphia

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Florida -

One day after Reggie Jackson set an Orlando Summer League scoring record, teammate Jeremy Lamb nearly broke it.

Lamb scored a game-high 32 points on 10-of-14 shooting to lead Oklahoma City to a 74-62 win over Philadelphia.

With Jackson resting on Wednesday, Lamb took control early and never looked back. He was a primary ballhandler with Jackson out which resulted in eight turnovers. However, that's not a role Lamb will be asked to play with OKC, so those turnovers aren't much to read into.

Thunder first round pick Steven Adams had another impressive performance, scoring 13 points and grabbing five rebounds to go with two blocked shots.

Philadelphia's top draft pick Michael Carter-Williams entered the game averaging 19.5 points in Summer League play, but was hounded mercilessly all afternoon by DeAndre Liggins. Carter-Williams finished with just seven points on 3-of-16 shooting with four turnovers. Rodney Williams led the 76ers with 12 points.

As a team, Oklahoma City held Philadelphia to 35.9 percent shooting while hitting on 48 percent of their own attempts, including a 9-of-16 performance from 3-point range. Kyle Kuric led the charge there, hitting three of his four attempts.

The Thunder is off on Thursday before participating in Championship Day on Friday.
