NBA Wildcat Watch: Las Vegas Summer League Roundup (July 9)

New, comments

Still no DiVincenzo, but Brunson was dishing dimes.

NBA: Dallas Mavericks-Press Conference Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

For three of the eight Wildcats playing in the Las Vegas NBA Summer League—Monday is the final day of games before the playoffs begin. The rest will play on Tuesday.

Each time a former Wildcat hits the court for Summer League play, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!

Jalen Brunson

The 6-foot-3 point guard finished just shy of a double-double in what was his best Summer League game, statistically, thus far. Brunson started in the Mavericks’ dominant win over Golden State, taking down the Warriors, 91-71. Through 19 minutes of action, he finished with nine points, a game-high eight assists, two rebounds, and four turnovers. Brunson excelled as a playmaker and got to show off his court vision and savvy as a passer. When it came to generating his own scoring, he was only 2-of-8 overall, but was 2-for-4 from deep.

Donte DiVincenzo

DiVincenzo returned to practicing with the Milwaukee Bucks, but he remained on the bench and inactive for Monday’s game with the Denver Nuggets. He is still out with a groin injury that he sustained just before the start of Summer League.

Mikal Bridges

The Phoenix Suns enjoyed an explosive fourth quarter that helped them spring ahead to a 71-53 victory over the Orlando Magic. As for Bridges, he had a quiet day. He was scoreless through 17 minutes of action, going 0-for-3 overall. Bridges did have four rebounds, two steals, and a block.

The Suns head into the Summer League playoffs with a perfect 3-0 record.
