Before we get into the exciting first day of the Orlando Summer League we have to give a shout out to Pierre Jackson, who injured his right Achilles just 7 minutes into the 76ers game vs the Magic, and wish him a speedy recovery.
The other high and lowlights of the day were…
- Nerlens Noel’s debut with 19 point, 4 steals, 2 rebounds and 1 block in 26 minutes
- Aaron Gordon missed 8 of his 11 shots and had 4 turnovers but had 1 monster rejection
- Shabazz Napier missed his first 10 shots (3-15 for the game) and had 8 turnovers
- Marcus Smart scored 10 points but missed 6 of his 8 shots
- 2nd round pick of the Rockets (and 2011 Ballislife All-American) Nick Johnson had the dunk of the night with a nasty poster on Tim Ohlbrecht
