After Detroit went up by 15 midway through the fourth, the Hornets crawled back to bring it to two. The Pistons would eventually hold off the Charlotte run to advance.

Magic rookie Jonathan Isaac sat out with a hip injury, but Kalin Lucas picked up the squad early. Lucas dropped 12 points in the first quarter to put Orlando up four.

New York would hang tough throughout the game, but Orlando eventually pulled away in the fourth. The Knicks continue their summer struggles as they drop to 0-4.

Dejounte Murray: 5 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assist, 1 steal

 

Jayson Tatum impressed again in his second game of the summer, but his 23 points were not enough to take down the Spurs

Bryn Forbes, my Spurs’ player to watch this summer, dropped 31 points while knocking down 6 of 8 threes.

Davis Bertans added 14 points, while point guard Dejounte Murray added 10 rebounds.

 

76ers: 94 Jazz: 100

Eric Griffin: 14 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block

Joel Bolomboy: 10 points, 5 rebounds, 1 steal

 

Philly’s comeback attempt comes up short, as their 31-23 fourth quarter run is not enough.

The Jazz picked up a win in front of the home crowd as Dante Exum’s push for a breakout continues. Exum scored 26 while dishing out 10 assists. With three field goals from behind the arc last night, Exum has made 5 out of 10 this summer as he looks to improve his outside shooting.

Markelle Fultz impressed, dropping 23 to go along with 5 rebounds and 5 assists.

 

Tune in today at 1 P.M. CT for the Orlando Pro Summer League Championship featuring the Dallas Mavericks against the Detroit Pistons.
