It’s the end of the road for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors in the Las Vegas Summer League. Omari Spellman and Eric Paschall didn’t play for the Warriors, but it was a nice final impression for Phil Booth.
Booth was in the starting five for the first time in Summer League play. He had been improving with each and every game, and Friday was no different. In a consolation game against the Sacramento Kings, he helped the Cavaliers take the win in overtime, 98-96.
While most of the attention went to teammate Malik Newman, the Kansas product that scored a game-high 33 points in the win, Booth had a solid night in his own right. He finished with a personal-high of 18 points in summer action, doing so on 6-of-9 shooting. He also added three boards, one assist, and a steal. Cleveland exits Vegas with a 2-3 record.
Paschall missed the final game due to a tailbone injury that also caused him to miss a couple games leading into Friday. Golden State was taking the cautious approach with its second-round draftee. The Warriors lost, 88-87, to the Los Angeles Lakers. Golden State wrapped up its time in Las Vegas with a 3-2 record.
Spellman was finally listed on the Warriors’ roster, for the first time since the trade, but he didn’t see any action in the 88-87 loss to the Lakers.
