Cole Aldrich started and went 5-7 shooting for 10 points and 10 rebounds. Hasheem Thabeet served as his backup, going 5-6 for 10 points, 10 rebounds and (per the Hasheem usual) six fouls. Daniel Orton didn’t play. At this point, the race for OKC”s backup center looks like a two-man race with Aldrich out in front. At the backup point, Reggie Jackson was first off the bench, playing 16 minutes, scoring four points and dishing out five assists. Surprisingly, Eric Maynor didn’t get into the game until late in the third, but once he arrived, he wasn’t gun-shy. Maynor had seven points (3-10 shooting) and added four assists in the final 15 minutes. Darnell Mayberry, who was in Hidalgo, will have more on NewsOK later.
