Thunder's Enes Kanter: Contributes 15 points, eight boards in win
Kanter compiled 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal across 15 minutes in Tuesday's 97-87 preseason win over the Nuggets.
For the second straight game, the Thunder leaned heavily on starting center Steven Adams, who played 25 minutes, but Kanter was able to flirt with a double-double in more limited time off the bench. Kanter is likely to surpass the 20-minute range most nights when the regular season arrives, which should be enough time for him to post quality lines on a fairly consistent basis. Kanter's ceiling for production is limited, however, by coach Billy Donovan's reluctance to deploy him alongside Adams as part of a super-sized frontcourt.
