The NBA Summer League wrapped up on Sunday, July 22 and three former Cats were in action. Marquis Teague’s Bulls were spanked by Doron Lamb’s Bucks, 113-68, and Eric Bledsoe’s Clippers downed the Celtics, 92-77, even though Bledsoe did not play. The story for the Clippers was Adam Morrison, who scored a game-high 26 points.
Teague and Lamb both got the start in the Bulls/Bucks game. Lamb continued his strong play by putting up 16 points on 6-11 shooting. He was 0-2 from deep. Teague had six points and was just 3-11 from the field.
Lamb started all four games for the Bucks as they went 3-1. He scored in double figures in three of four games, including a 20-point performance to open play against the Hornets. He averaged 14.0 points, shot 46-percent from the field, and went a surprising 0-7 from deep. This from a kid that many revered as strictly a spot-up shooter.
Teague started all five games for the Bulls who went 1-4. He averaged just over ten points per game to go with three assists. But, he struggled with his turnovers, 3.8 per game, and shot just 29-percent from the floor.
Bledsoe played in three games, averaging 12.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 4.7 turnovers.
Darius Miller really struggled in five games with the Hornets as they went 1-4. He started the first four games, but did not start in the finale. He scored in double figures just once and averaged just 4.4 points. He shot 33-percent from the floor and was 0-6 from deep.
One of the most impressive teams in Summer League play was the Houston Rockets (4-1) and a big reason for that was Terrence Jones. In five starts, he averaged 18.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists, while shooting 50-percent from the floor. With Jones, Royce White and Jeremy Lamb, this Rockets team has some young talent.
Josh Harrellson had 13 points in Houston’s last game.
