2012 NBA Summer League: Thunder Defeat Pistons, 83-62

The Oklahoma City Thunder have their first win of the 2012 season.

Well, sort of. Oklahoma City's 2012 Summer League team notched its first win of the summer, defeating the Detroit Pistons, 83-62.

Five members of the Oklahoma City squad were in double figures, and three players scored 15 points a piece. Lazar Hayward, Garrett Temple and Reggie Jackson (no, not that Reggie Jackson), all paced Oklahoma City with 15 points.

Jackson also tied a team high with seven rebounds, all coming on the defensive glass. Cole Aldrich also grabbed seven rebounds for the Thunder.

Despite scoring 15 points, Hayward was just 4-of-13 shooting, including 0-for-4 beyond the arc. Temple led the team in three point shooting, going 2-of-5 from long distance.

Austin Daye led all Pistons scorers with a game-high 18 points. Brandon Knight attempted a game-high 17 shots, but was just 5-of-17 for 11 points.
