Oklahoma City lost to Dallas today in the Orlando Summer League, but Dakari Johnson turned in yet another impressive performance with 18 points (8-11), 2 rebounds, and 2 blocked shots. As we’ve seen throughout the Summer League, Dakari showcased his improved ball-handling skills, even bringing the ball down the floor at times for the Thunder:

After the game, Thunder summer coach Mark Daigneault praised Dakari’s improvement over the past year, telling reporters that they’re enjoying finding new ways to use him on the floor:
