Day two of the Salt Lake City and California Classic Summer Leagues are in the books. Eric Paschall (Golden State Warriors) and Phil Booth (Cleveland Cavaliers) returned to action.
The final day of these two Summer Leagues is on Wednesday. After that, the main Summer League in Las Vegas will begin on Friday, one day after the Independence Day festivities.
In the mean time, here’s how the second day of action went for the newest NBA ‘Cats.
Paschall was back in the starting five for the Golden State Warriors. Although his team lost to the Lakers, 100-90, it was a much better showing for Paschall, who found success hitting his shots and was also an all-around contributor.
The 6-foot-8 NBA rookie seemed a lot more comfortable in his second outing with the Warriors, which is to be expected with time and experience, as he asserted himself in a variety of ways. Paschall logged 24 minutes of action, finishing with a team-high 18 points on an efficient 6-of-8 shooting night. He also had three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block. It was a solid performance that showcased his potential to hang around at the professional level.

This was almost a really nice defensive possession by Eric Paschall, but unfortunately he fouls Joseph Young at the end. Regardless, you can still see Paschall's defensive versatility here pic.twitter.com/nhVw64Ufmr— Zach Milner (@ZachMilner13) July 3, 2019
Booth seemed to struggle again in the Cavaliers’ game against the host Utah Jazz. Booth played nine minutes and had another scoreless night. He was 0-for-3 on the floor, but he did grab two rebounds. He also had a turnover.
Cleveland lost 86-71.
