Day three of the Orlando Pro Summer League is in full swing with the second of four games just ended with the Oklahoma City Thunder moving to 3-0 in the league as they defeated the Detroit Pistons 79-75.

A game which was very entertaining to say the least.  The story though would have to be what happened in the fourth quarter.  Reggie Jackson happened.   Jackson put his team on his back to score 23 in the quarter which would lead him to set a record for the summer league with 35 for the game.

Jackson had his way, he was on fire.  I can see why the Oklahoma City Thunder and their fans are excited to have a player like this already on their team.  He has a killer instinct and what he does on the floor is phenomenal.

He went 12 of 19 from the floor on his way to single handling outscoring the Detroit Pistons in the final period.  His teammates told him to do what he does and he did.  Getting in the lane, hitting jumpers, making great decisions.  He is truly something to watch.
