Tuesday, December 11

It's been a busy week for the Tulsa 66ers. The team recently ended a stretch of playing four games within five days and after a much earned off day returned to practice Tuesday afternoon. After suffering their first two losses of the season on Wednesday and Thursday, the 66ers bounced back for a pair of wins against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Saturday and Sunday.

Tulsa featured four Oklahoma City Thunder players in 66ers uniforms throughout the five-day stretch with Jeremy Lamb and Daniel Orton playing all four games, Perry Jones playing Wednesday and Thursday and Reggie Jackson playing on Saturday. Lamb and Orton also saw a one-day callup to dress for the Thunder's Friday night home game against the Lakers.

One of the biggest non-assignment performances of the week came from Tulsa's first-round draft pick Dominique Sutton. Over the last three games, Sutton has averaged 18.7 points and 8.3 rebounds, collecting a pair of double-doubles along the way. Sutton helped fuel Tulsa's second-half comeback on Sunday afternoon with 13 fourth-quarter points.

Following Tuesday's practice, Sutton spoke with Tulsa66ers.com about the busy weekend, his increased offensive and defensive production and how he's improved since joining the 66ers.
