OKC Thunder Summer League Game #2 Recap

It wasn’t the greatest outing from the boys in blue and orange. They only scored 65 points while allowing 80 from the Pelicans. Naji Marshall had a nice showing for the Pels when he put up 18 points and 11 rebounds. Some Thunder players had decent games despite the poor score.

Aaron Wiggins – Grade: A

Wiggins had a very good game off the bench. To put it very bluntly, Wiggins was the only one to have a great game. He put up a beefy, all-around statline that consisted of 16 points, five boards, two assists, two steals and a swat for good measure. He shot only 7-16 from the field and made just one of seven threes but he still had the best outing out of most of his teammates. Wiggins is actually having a good Summer League so far, averaging 14.5 points, five rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.5 steals and half a block a game on a nice 48% from the field. His outside scoring needs some improvement to as he’s shooting just 11% from three. Despite the bugaboos, Wiggins is looking like a nice second round pick for this club and it wouldn’t be all too surprising to see him get some actual playing time in the regular season.

Tre Mann – Grade: B+

Mann had a rough go of it when it came to shooting efficiently, shooting a paltry 4-15 from the field. Other than that, he had a good statline, putting up 12 points, six boards, seven dimes, two steals and a block. He also only had two turnovers compared to a nice seven dimes, so his playmaking and ball security were on display. Mann isn’t having the greatest Summer League, averaging only nine points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, a steal and block a game. His efficiency is an issue, as he’s shooting 24% from the field, 0% (three attempts a game) from three (yikes) and two turnovers a game compared to 3.5 assists. Mann has some work to do but his aggressiveness is certainly there. It’s just a matter of time before he can turn it around and up his efficiency.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl – Grade: A-

Earl had a fairly decent game offensively despite the low usage. The second-rounder put up eight points efficiently, shooting 3-6 from the field and drilling two of four threes. He added on four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block. Being a second rounder, Presti is looking like a genius with this pick. His efficiency is very nice to see as well since he wasn’t the greatest shooting in college. So far in the Summer League, he’s shooting 50% from the field and 38% from three on four attempts a game. He’s only 50% from the line but the low free-throw count per game negates the inefficiency. His IQ and athleticism are on display so seeing him play some regular season minutes will be a nice treat. He’ll probably spend a little time in the G-League but it probably won’t be too long.
