Boston 76, Indiana 74 - The Celtics used a huge second quarter to build a lead but still needed a last second Pacers three point attempt to rim off to hold on for a two point win. Kelly Olynyk was huge for Boston, tallying 21 points and nine rebounds. Darius Johnson-Odom came off the bench again, but didn't have the magic like the day before. He finished with four points, one rebound, and one steal.
Oklahoma City 79, Detroit 75 - Reggie Jackson woke up after his lousy outing yesterday, scoring 23 of his NBA Summer League record 35 points in the fourth quarter. He gave the Thunder the lead on a dunk with 1:48 left and iced the game with four free throws in the last 13 seconds. Dwight Buycks had a monster three late - again - on his way to finishing with 13 points, six rebounds, three assists, and four steals.
Houston 85, Utah 71 - Five Rockets scored in double digits to help the team slowly build an insurmountable lead across the first three quarters of the game, even though no one scored more than 11 points. Vander Blue made his summer league debut for Houston, scoring seven points on 2-7 shooting in 15 minutes. He also added five rebounds and an assist. Jerel McNeal was held out of action again, although this time it's listed as "coach's decision," and not due to the previously reported knee injury.
