The Oklahoma City Thunder got off to a solid start despite missing starting point guard Chris Paul. A couple of runs in the first half helped OKC to a 15-point lead at one point before taking a 7-point lead into halftime.
The Grizzlies came out hot in the third quarter, however, and outscored the Thunder 46-28 in the period to take an 11-point lead into the final frame. After trailing by as many as 17 in the second half and by 14 with under 4 minutes to play, OKC mounted a comeback to cut the deficit to 3 points, but it was too little too late, and the Thunder left with a 124-119 loss to end the preseason.View More Thunder Falls to Memphis Despite Late Rally
Devon Hall made only five three-point shots as a freshman at Virginia. Last season, as a senior, he was good from long-range 57 times (43.2%). I’m not going to tell you that the Caviler offense went through Hall’s hands but Virginia did score on an average of 1.15 points per possession when he was on the floor as opposed to 0.94 points per possession when he wasn’t. That isn’t why Oklahoma City drafted him though.View More Rookie Devon Hall Brings Defensive Intensity To Oklahoma City
