ORLANDO — Under a new scoring format that will determine a champion this week, the Thunder earned five points with a 76-68 win over Indiana in its Orlando Pro Summer League opener Sunday afternoon.
Grant Jerrett, the 40th overall pick out of Arizona, made four of five 3-pointers and finished with a team-high 17 points and three blocked shots for the Thunder. Daniel Orton had 15 points, Jeremy Lamb scored 14 and point guard Dwight Buycks, playing his second straight summer league with OKC, finished with 12 points and a game-high 13 assists.
The league's point system awards one point for each quarter a team wins, three points for winning the game. The Thunder won the first and fourth quarters.
Steven Adams impressed in his Thunder debut. The 12th overall pick out of Pittsburgh scored only two points on 1-for-4 shooting but had six rebounds and two blocked shots in 21 minutes. His lone basket came with 2:20 remaining in the opening period, the result of a gorgeous pick-and-roll with Lamb, who tossed a lob pass high in the air before Adams caught it with one hand from the right of the lane and flushed it with power.
The Thunder's second game will be 10 a.m. on Monday against host Orlando.
