Thunder Takes Down Sixers In Manchester Exhibition

Posted: Updated:

The Thunder trio of Kevin Durant, Reggie Jackson and Serge Ibaka led the team to a 103-99 victory against Philadelphia in an exhibition game in Manchester, England.

Durant nearly earned a triple-double with 21 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds and Ibaka chipped in a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds but Reggie Jackson was the difference-maker for the Thunder across the pond.

The third-year guard poured in 29 points on 10-of-17 shooting and dished out eight assists to just one turnover. Filling in for the recovering Russell Westbrook, Jackson was too much for Sixers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams to handle. Only Jeremy Lamb played more minutes (39:59 to 36:28).

Lamb, the man OKC will lean on to help make up the loss of Kevin Martin, looked shaky in his first start, going 2-for-12 from the floor and 0-for-8 from behind the stripe. Many of his trey opportunities were unguarded and he turned the ball over five times, a team high.

Rookie Steven Adams also started for the Thunder but played just under 17 minutes. Adams finished with six points, four rebounds and two blocks and ran the floor well. He held his own against Sixer big Spencer Hawes and showed the athleticism that caused Thunder GM Sam Presti to select him in the first round on the NBA Draft.

Tony Wroten led Philadelphia with 20 points off the bench and Evan Turner had 19 points and seven rebounds.

The Thunder returns home for another preseason game against the Denver Nuggets next Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7:00 P.M.
