ORLANDO -- Thunder guard Reggie Jackson had to leave Monday's summer league game against Orlando after a collision with teammate Daniel Orton left him with a laceration above his left eye.
The injury occurred with 6:02 remaining in the third quarter on a routine offensive play. Jackson, dribbling up the court, passed to Jeremy Lamb on the right wing and attempted to cut through the lane. But he ran into Orton and the two bumped heads, sending them both crashing to the floor.
Both remained there for several moments before being attended to by the team's medical staff. When Jackson rolled over, he revealed blood dribbling from just above his eye.
Jackson was immediately taken to the locker room. Orton remained in the game for a small subsequent stretch but soon checked out and also left the court near the conclusion of the third period.
Andrew Smith, an undrafted center out of Butler, also left the game after sustaining a sprained right ankle in the second quarter.
After trailing by as many as 12 points in the second half, however, the Thunder stormed back to take a 79-78 win over the host Magic. OKC was outscored in the first three quarters, but outscored Orlando 31-21 in the final period, earning the Thunder four points for its performance.
Under the summer league's new scoring system, teams are awarded one point for each quarter they win and three points for winning a game. The Thunder now has nine points through two games. The two teams with the most points going into Friday will play in the championship game.
Orton scored nine points with seven rebounds and one blocked shot before his exit. Jackson finished with just four points, four rebounds and four assists. He missed five of seven shots and turned it over seven times.
Grant Jerrett, the 40th overall pick, scored a team-high 14 points on 5-for-10 shooting. After making four of five 3-pointers Sunday, Jerrett made four of eight from behind the arc against Orlando.
Jeremy Lamb also struggled with his shot, missing 12 of 16 shot and eight of nine 3-pointers. But he made the game-winning shot on a step-back jumper with six seconds remaining. Lamb then came up with the game-clinching steal on Orlando's ensuing inbounds pass.
