Atlanta Hawks 92, Houston Rockets 86 - SHOUT OUT TO TRENT LOCKETT! In the final Summer League game for the Hawks, the former Golden Eagle led Atlanta to victory with a 17 point performance. He also snagged five rebounds, dished three assists, blocked two shots, and came up with a steal. All in all, a nice bit of business in 27 minutes of action.
As for the game itself, it was pretty tightly contested with neither team leading by more than 10 points at any juncture. Atlanta took the lead for good early in the fourth quarter when Alpha Kaba jammed it home to put the Hawks up 68-67. It was still close in the late goings when Troy Williams got an and-1 to pull Houston within one with 3:41 remaining. They wouldn’t score for another three minutes, though, and that was that.
Golden State Warriors 109, Los Angeles Clippers 100 - 13 ties and eight lead changes eventually turned into a nine point victory for the Dubs to wrap up Summer League play for both squads. Dylan Ennis came off the bench to score 35 points in just 28 minutes, largely powered by an 8-of-11 performance from three-point range. The rest of the Warriors? A very un-Warriors-esque 3-of-11 from distance.
Jamil Wilson played just five minutes in this game. He missed one three-pointer and committed one foul. He wraps up Summer League shooting an absurd 79% from the field, most of that coming on three-point attempts. It appears that he’s on the verge of signing a two-way contract with the Clippers, so presumably Doc Rivers knows that most basketball players can’t maintain the torrid pace that Wilson was on in Las Vegas.
