Jeremy Lamb made a late jumper and the Thunder beat Orlando Monday in an NBA summer league game.
But the big news from Monday wasn't Lamb's jumper, it was Reggie Jackson and Daniel Orton colliding in the third quarter which sent Jackson to the lockerroom with a cut above his left eye.
According to The Oklahoman, Jackson received three stitches above his eye and had a headache and some swelling. Jackson is not expected to miss Tuesday's game. Orton remained in the game but left the game at the end of the third quarter.
The two ran into each other and bumped heads. Jackson finished the game with four points and seven turnovers on 2-of-7 shooting. Orton had nine points and seven rebounds.
Lamb was just 4-of-16 from the field, including 1-of-9 on 3-pointers, but his 16-footer was good with 6 seconds to play in the 79-78 win over the Magic.
With the departure of Kevin Martin to free agency, Jackson remains the best option off the bench this season. Russell Westbrook is supposed to be at full strength when the season starts after a knee injury knocked him out of the playoffs.

Jeremy Lamb was not having a great shooting day for the Thunder. Confidence though is all about taking the next shot. And Lamb is not short on that. Even late in a game where his team was trailing for much of it -- in Summer League, no less -- and needed timely shooting to get there.
The Thunder found their offense and Lamb found his shot in the end.

As the Thunder lead by one with less than 7 seconds to play, Thunder guard Jeremy Lamb took the ball from Andrew Nicholson and threw it ahead to Kuric for the uncontested lay-up.
That’s when Kuric blew his open lay-up and gave...
