Marquette In The NBA Orlando Summer League: 7/5/15

Who starts a summer league on Independence Day, anyway??

Well, I guess the NBA does.  Luckily for us, the Orlando Summer League is a smaller event with only 10 teams involved, and that includes the Orlando Magic contributing two different rosters.  Even more lucky for us, Trent Lockett is the only former Marquette player involved in the Orlando league, so we only need to pay attention to the games that the Pacers play.

Miami 92, Indiana 76 - Myles Turner had a game high 20 points to lead the Pacers, but that wasn't enough to overcome the Heat on Saturday.  Four different Miami players cracked double digits, led by 15 points from Justise Winslow.

The Pacers only led the game at 2-0 and the Heat led by as many as 26 at one point, which kind of ruined all the fun of the game.  Trent Lockett got the most playing time amongst the Indiana reserves, and ended up playing two more minutes than two of the starters.  He chipped in 10 points to the Pacer effort on 4-10 shooting, but did bury two of his three long range attempts.  Lockett also contributed two rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a block in his 24 minutes of action.

If you want a highlight package that doesn't feature Lockett, the NBA's got you covered.

Next up for Indiana: A day off, followed by a game against Orlando White on Monday at 12pm Central.
