ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A look at the some of the highlights from the three games played Wednesday at the Orlando Summer League.

WHITE HOT

The Orlando Magic White continue to be dominant during this week’s Orlando Summer League. Orlando’s second team improved to 3-0 with Wednesday’s 95-90 victory over the New York Knicks at Amway Center.

The Magic had four of five starters score in double figures. Forward Treveon Graham led the way with 19 points while guard Justin Dentmon added 18.

STOCK RISING

Oklahoma City Thunder second-year point guard Cameron Payne is showing some explosive ability during this week’s games.

He is second in scoring through three games, averaging 20 points. Payne, who was the Thunder’s first-round pick (14th overall) out of Murray State in 2015, scored 19 points Wednesday to lead Oklahoma City to an 89-71 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

FOUL MOOD

The Magic and Knicks played a relatively close game with five lead changes and four ties Wednesday, but the difference came down to free throws.

Orlando attempted 20 more free throws than New York, while converting 29 compared to 18 by the Knicks in the five-point win. Michael Frazier went 8 for 10 off the bench, while Patricio Garino converted 6 of 7 free throws on the day for Orlando.

The Knicks shot nearly 82 percent (18 of 22) from the free throw line, while the Magic made just 69 percent (29 of 42) of their free throws.

In Orlando, the Dallas Mavericks take on the Orlando Magic Blue, the Los Angeles Clippers face the Orlando Magic White, and the Detroit Pistons play the Miami Heat. In Salt Lake City, the Boston Celtics face the San Antonio Spurs, and the Philadelphia 76ers meet the Utah Jazz.
