ORLANDO, Fla. -- The second day of summer league play saw the Sixers playing Thunder without Nerlens Noel, who did not play for precautionary reasons after scoring a game-high 19 points Saturday.

With Pierre Jackson lost to a ruptured Achilles, Hollis Thompson sidelined with left knee soreness and Noel out, the Sixers' roster was down to nine available players.

All nine players scored in the first half to help the Sixers take a 16-point lead into intermission, and they rode their hot start to an 84-73 win over the Thunder.

Casper Ware led the Sixers with 20 points. The 5-foot-10 point guard also grabbed five rebounds and handed out five assists.

Travis Bader, a four-year player at Oakland University, and K.J. McDaniels scored 13 apiece. St. Joe’s product Ronald Roberts Jr. added 12 points and six rebounds.

Mario Little led the Thunder with 18 points.

The Sixers shot 51 percent from the floor while holding the Thunder to 37.3 percent shooting.

The Sixers will not play again until Tuesday at 7 p.m. against the Houston Rockets.
