Markieff Morris has his first game with the Thunder last night. He played 17 minutes and got 2 assists and shot 0-1 from the field. It doesn’t sound great but just bare in mind that he hasn’t adjusted to how the Thunder play or played with the team for long enough to get in his groove. So not too bad a night for him.
