As the Summer League enters its final weekend, we’re taking a look back at what has happened over the past three days.
Minnesota Timberwolves 80, San Antonio Spurs 71
Two of the best players in the Big East last season, Kris Dunn and Ryan Arcidiacono, were slated to face off in this game. However, Dunn is still suffering the lingering effects of a concussion, so he was held out.
Arcidiacono recorded two points, five rebounds, and two assists as he continued his stat sheet stuffing for San Antonio.
Philadelphia 76ers 108, NBA D-League Select 71
Tu Holloway had two points and two rebounds in 15 minutes for the D-League Select team while Jabril Trawick had a solid 12 points and seven boards.
Cleveland Cavaliers 98, Boston Celtics 94
Sir’Dominic Pointer had seven points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes for the victorious Cavs, while Ben Bentil had four points and three rebounds for the Celtics.
JayVaughn Pinkston recorded a DNP for the Celtics.
Dallas Mavericks 81, Milwaukee Bucks 64
Vander Blue had 12 points and six rebounds for Dallas in the victory. On the other side, Joshua Smith had seven rebounds but failed to get on the scoring sheet for the Bucks.
Washington Wizards 71, Atlanta Hawks 60
Former Friar point guard Bryce Cotton scored 11 points and grabbed two rebounds in the Hawks’ 71-60 loss to the Wizards on Thursday. Meanwhile, on the winner’s side, Daniel Ochefu and Sterling Gibbs combined for merely two points with Gibbs amassing them both. The two combined for six rebounds and three assists elsewhere.
Minnesota Timberwolves 89, Memphis Grizzlies 85
Kris Dunn continued to battle a concussion he suffered recently and did not dress in the T’Wolves’ 89-85 victory over the Grizzlies. Kellen Dunham played less than five minutes for the Grizzlies in the loss, accounting for just one rebound and no points.
Brooklyn Nets 87, Philadelphia 76ers 84
Isaiah Whitehead played well in the Nets’ close victory over the Sixers on Thursday. Whitehead scored nine points, grabbed five rebounds, dished out five assists and picked up two steals as well while shooting 50 percent from the field and from the 3-point line on two attempts. Former Hoya Henry Sims meanwhile scored four, grabbed two boards, and picked up an assist in 12 minutes of action.
Denver Nuggets 80, Utah Jazz 60
JaKarr Sampson played well off the bench in the Nuggets’ win over the Jazz. Sampson scored seven, grabbed six rebounds and was 5-for-6 from the free throw line.
Chicago Bulls 86, Dallas Mavericks 73
Vander Blue and the Mavericks were not able to hand the Bulls their first loss in the Vegas Summer League. Despite that, Blue was able to get on the board a few times as he finished with nine points, albeit on an inefficient nine shots. While he shot 4-for-9 from the field, you’d certainly like to see him play a bit more controlled in that aspect. Still, he committed only one turnover and picked up three assists and five boards in the losing effort.
Cleveland Cavaliers 88, Los Angeles Lakers 80
Sir’Dominic Pointer followed up a solid outing the day before with a slightly less effective one in the win over the Lakers. Sir’Dom scored five points on six shots and while he was 3-for-4 from the free throw line, it certainly wasn’t the most sterling performance for the former Red Storm hooper. Pointer picked up two steals and three rebounds in the contest as well.
San Antonio Spurs 90, Sacramento Kings 85
After being signed by the Spurs, Ryan Arcidiacono played almost 19 minutes in the Spurs’ victory over the Kings. Arch didn’t score any points but managed to drop two assists and grab a rebound off the bench.
NBA D-League Select 88, New Orleans Pelicans 76
While Tu Holloway didn’t play, former Georgetown Hoyas forward Jabril Trawick scored 12 points in the D-League Select team’s 88-76 victory over the Pelicans. Trawick was 4-for-9 from the field in the outing and 3-for-4 from the free throw line. He added three rebounds and three assists to his line as well as a steal.
Portland Trail Blazers 80, Boston Celtics 75
Ben Bentil and JayVaughn Pinkston didn’t manage to get on the statsheet but the former Friar was able to find ways to contribute elsewhere. The Big East’s MIP in the 2015-16 season pulled down six rebounds in 6:47 of action.
Atlanta Hawks 89, Memphis Grizzlies 79
Former Providence Friar Bryce Cotton paced the Hawks with a team-high 18 points on 6-13 shooting and dished out four assists.
For the Grizzlies, Kellen Dunham had eight points and two rebounds in 18 minutes.
Philadelphia 76ers 74, Miami Heat 66
Chris Obekpa had two points and two rebounds in 16 minutes for the Heat.
Dallas Mavericks 80, Golden State Warriors 74
Vander Blue had another strong game for the Mavericks, scoring 12 points and grabbing four rebounds in 16 minutes of action.
Utah Jazz 92, Los Angeles Lakers 88
Jamil Wilson had six rebounds for the Lakers, while Ethan Wragge added a rebound of his own. Neither player recorded a point.
