Mavericks 80, Warriors 74 - 45 second half points for Golden State wasn’t enough to overcome the 43-29 halftime deficit as Dallas held on and took the six point win in consolation play.
Golden State had a well balanced attack, considering only nine guys played. Five guys scored in double digits, including three off the bench. The Mavs played everybody except for Justin Anderson, their first round draft pick a year ago and only needed two double digit scorers to pick up the W.
One of those two guys was your man Vander Blue, who got 12 points off the bench for Dallas. He had to shoot 4-of-10 to get there, though. Blue added four rebounds to his final Summer League performance of the year.
Jazz 92, Lakers 88 - 2016 first round pick Brandon Ingram closed out Summer League with a 22 point, five rebound, four assist outing, but it wasn’t enough for the Lakers as they fell to the Jazz. Los Angeles might have had a chance to get the win here, but D`Angelo Russell didn’t dress because he has commitments for USA Basketball.
Utah won the third quarter, 28-19, to hold on for the victory. Joel Bolomboy led the way for the Jazz with 20 points and seven rebounds.
Jamil Wilson had one final appearance for the Lakers, going scoreless in 16+ minutes of action. He missed all five of his shots, including four three-point attempts. The former Golden Eagle did reel in six rebounds and dished an assist, so it’s not like he was just running around out there.
Wilson should be on his way to Chicago for The Basketball Tournament, but if this was the last game of the day in Las Vegas, he didn’t leave Sin City until after midnight Chicago time. We’ll see if he makes it to St. Xavier University in time for tonight’s 9:15pm start. Even if he makes it, he might want to take the night off, and I wouldn’t blame him for that.
