The championship bracket gets a day off so the consolation side of the bracket can wrap things up.

Toronto 64, Los Angeles Clippers 60 - Blerg. I could try to pretend to care about this low scoring disaster of a game, but Dwight Buycks didn't play, so I'm not going to waste your time.

D-League Select 91, Philadelphia 87 (OT) - A 6-2 advantage in the overtime session denied us another game with Sudden Victory Basketball.  Alas.  The Sixers had a nine point lead at the start of the fourth quarter, and it quickly moved to 12 points early in the period before the Select squad came roaring back to force extras.  Philly had the first basket of the extra period, but Trent Lockett had the next bucket and the NBDL squad took things from there.  It looks like the D-League coaching staff elected to give some other guys some run in this one, as Tony Mitchell didn't even play and Lockett was removed from the starting lineup.  Lockett still played 29 minutes, but struggled to find his shot, going 3-11 on the night.  He finished with seven points, four rebounds, one assist, and one steal.  Devin Ebanks led the way for the D-Leaguers with 23 points.

That wraps up the consolation side of the bracket for the Vegas Summer League.  From here, it's only championship bracket games.

Today's Schedule (all times Central)

7pm: Chicago vs Sacramento, NBA TV
9pm: San Antonio vs Washington, NBA TV

We're forced to lose either Jamil Wilson or Vander Blue after today's games?  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  Well, at least Chicago is on the opposite side of the bracket, so the dream of an all-MU involvement championship game is still alive.
