Day 7 of the NBA Summer League saw 11 games take place, as Orlando wrapped up while Las Vegas was just getting started. Let's take a look at the action
Dallas Mavericks 97, Charlotte Hornets 92
Former Marquette guard Vander Blue was one of the bright spots for the Mavericks as they beat the Hornets in their final game of the Orlando Summer League. The former Golden Eagle shot 6 of 17 from the field and had 17 points on the night, second highest on the team in that game.
Oklahoma City Thunder 86, Miami Heat 72
Semaj Christon was the best player on the court for the Thunder against the Heat in the final game for both teams. Along with Cameron Payne, the former Xavier guard formed a deadly backcourt combo that the Heat couldn't handle. Christon scored 22 points on 10 of 14 shooting along with 4 assists.
Orlando Magic White 87, Detroit Pistons 84
It was the championship game in the Orlando Summer League but Henry Ellenson and his Detroit Pistons teammates came up just short. Ellenson, who scored a game-high 22 points and 11 rebounds, had a chance to tie the game late into overtime. The first round pick had his turnaround jumper from the corner three bounce out and he stepped out of bounds and turned the ball over before he could get another shot off. Tough way to end the summer league but Ellenson has been improving in each game.
Memphis Grizzlies 99, D-League Select Team 79
It was a good win for the Grizzlies but not a good night for Butler guard Kellen Dunham. The former Bulldog only saw 2 minutes of game time and missed his only field goal attempt. Rough start to Summer League for Dunham and let's hope he can turn it around. Meanwhile, former Xavier guard Tu Holloway impressed for the Select team. He scored 10 points and had 3 assists along with 3 boards. Solid for his 18 minutes of action that he got.
Denver Nuggets 88, Minnesota Timberwolves 82
Although his team lost, Kris Dunn stole the show in Las Vegas. The 5th pick in this years draft lit up the Denver Nuggets for 27 points, going 10 out of 18 from the field. Dunn showed why he was being talked about as the best guard in the draft by his play tonight. He certainly got the attention of his future T-Wolves teammates as well. Fantastic performance by Dunn.
