Thunder Wins Orlando Summer League Title

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Florida -

It might not be the championship Thunder fans had in mind for the 2013 season but it is a championship nonetheless; Oklahoma City has won the first ever Orlando Summer League title.

The Thunder capped off a 5-0 week in Florida with a 85-77 victory against the Houston Rockets on Friday in the inaugural championship contest.

Jeremy Lamb scored 18 points to guide OKC past Houston in a game the Thunder led by as much as 20 in the second half before a Rocket rally made things interesting late.

Reggie Jackson sat out for the second-straight game but Lamb was able to carry the load with a helping hand from Daniel Orton and a pair of rookies. Orton came off the bench to score 12 points, while rookie center Steven Adams had 10 points and nine rebounds.

Fellow newcomer Andre Roberson had a well-rounded effort with seven points and he pulled down a game-best 11 rebounds to go with two steals and a block.

Tony Taylor had 11 points for Oklahoma City, highlighted by seven free throws in the final 1:21 of the game to help hold off the Rockets' rally.

The Rockets were led by 21 points from Robert Covington and B.J. Young scored 20.
