Day One Orlando Summer League Report

The opening day of the Orlando NBA Summer League was filled with highlight plays and competitive action. The new point system that makes each quarter of play, a game within the game, seemed to elevate the energy - especially in the late stages of the five contests on the day. 

Romero Osby hustles. 
Our Most Outstanding Player of Day One was Romero Osby who helped Orlando to a ten point win over Boston. Osby is a forward that looked comfortable on the floor as a "three", playing alongside Andrew Nicholson, and Kyle O'Quinn. Osby made hustle plays, took charges, had offensive rebound tip-ins in traffic, and showed the versatility to lead a fast break and drop a sweet ally oop assist at speed. He finished with 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-5 FT), and five rebounds in 24 minutes off the bench. Osby was selected 51st by the Magic in the 2013 NBA Draft. 

Our Day One All Orlando Summer League Team: point guards: Dwight Buycks - OKC, Patrick Beverley - Houston. Shooting Guards: Dionte Christmas - Utah, Victor Oladipo - Orlando. Small Forwards: Osby - Orlando  Tony Mitchell (Alabama, Boston). Power Forwards: Kelly Olynyk - Boston, Terrence Jones - Houston, Grant Jerrett - OKC. Centers: Miles Plumlee - Indiana, Andre Drummond - Detroit, Mason Plumlee - Brooklyn.
