Jeremy Lamb and the Oklahoma City Thunder just knocked off the Houston Rockets to be crowned the champions of the Orlando Pro Summer League.  Lamb continued his strong play as he paced the Thunder with a team high 18 points on 6-of-18 shooting in 31 minutes of play.

The Rockets (4-1) were led by Robert Covington who had a game high 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting from the floor in 32 minutes of play.  Teammate, B.J. Young came off of the bench to do what he could to keep the game close as he poured in 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field.

Both teams shot over 40% from the field.  Houston looked to take control in the fourth quarter as they came on strong to outscore the Thunder 26 to 22 but Lamb and company were just to strong down the stretch.
