Only Clippers not dressed tonight are Michael Devoe (training camp deal) and Jason Preston. Devoe recently hurt a leg, is expected to miss a couple weeks. – 10:36 PM

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

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

Clemente Almanza @CAlmanza1007
Tre Mann with 13 points in 15 1st-half mins – 10:05 PM

Innovative pass there by Tre Mann to Kenrich Williams for the easy under-the-basket layup – 10:02 PM

Mann is the leading scorer tonight for either team. – 9:58 PM

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

Portland Trail Blazers @trailblazers
It’s about that time ‼️

I believe that was Tre Mann who on his block just now said “give me that sh—“. I’ll never forget you, old friend. pic.twitter.com/eZmdBAj4449:30 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

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Tre Mann hype train isn’t losing any steam through the first eight minutes of preseason ball. – 9:27 PM

Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Mann oh Mann… – 9:26 PM

Jason Preston had 10 assists Friday night in his NBA preseason debut.
8 of them were for 3s. Simple passes for the most part, but precise at the same time. Must be nice to play with prepared pro shooters. pic.twitter.com/XlzUs74QIE5:06 PM
