Kevin Pelton @kpelton Asked Gary Payton II pregame about being part of an NBA game in Seattle (he’s out after surgery): “It’s a big night for me just to come home and see the new arena and reminisce about everything from back in the day when the Sonics were here and I was growing up. It’s special.” – 10:30 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin It’s very amusing to me that this game is classified as a Clippers “home” game, using Clippers game ops, when it’s in Seattle and most of the jerseys in the crowd are either Blazers or Sonics. – 10:09 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles Tre Mann is the player of the half by far. Really improved defensively, effective scoring. Year 2 is off to a great start. – 10:07 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto Thunder first quarter observations – Tre Mann remains fun. And really fought defensively. – Swarming defense all around, especially by preseason standards. – Jalen Williams ran point with the second unit. – Aaron Wiggins can be a steady two-way contributor. – 9:41 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar Tre Mann, one of the most buzzed about OKC players during training camp, in the first 8 minutes: 8 points 3-6 shooting 2-3 from 3 1-1 smooth stepback 3s – 9:27 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles Talked about it on Today’s Locked on Thunder, Tre Mann is the best pure scorer OKC has right now without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, can he look effective in that role? So far he is 3-6 with 8 points. – 9:27 PM
