Heels in the Pro’s ~ Summer League (Day 3)The third day of the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas featured a trio of former UNC Basketball players, even though a fourth should have played but did not. So, without further interruptions, let’s check out how each of the four players did on this edition of “Heels in the League” for July 14, 2013… In the first game, played between the Los Angeles Clippers and the NBA D League Team, features the only drafted rookie coming out of Chapel Hill in Reggie Bullock. For the shooting guard it’s his second game where he scores 18 points, which is a team high for the Clippers, however this time his shooting leaves a bit more to be desired as he goes 4 for 12 overall and 3 for 10 from beyond the arc. On the other hand the 6’7″ guard does hit all seven of his free throws. To go with his points the former Heel also grabs five rebounds, to go with a pair of assists, a steal and three turnovers. Bullock plays a game high 31:11 and he is one of only three Clippers to stay on the positive of the +/- differential with a +2, as well as only one of three team mates to be in double figures. In the end it is the Select Team to take this one, defeating the LA franchise by the final of 83 to 77. With the loss the Clippers slide to 1 and 1 in the tournament and will now face off versus the Lakers (1-1) today, with the game tipping off at 8:00 p.m. PT. Clippers NBDL Select Box Score(Click to enlarge the Image) The second game of the night, a match between the LA Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers, which have on their roster another shooting guard out of UNC from this year, Dexter Strickland, who went undrafted last month. For the 6’3″ Strickland it’s a short night, coming off the pine for close to seven minutes, scoring a basket on 1 for 2 shooting, while adding nothing else to his box score. And while it’s not much, it can be considered progress, since last game Strickland did not even get to see the floor. In the end it was the Lakers winning this one, by the final of 81 to 63. With the loss the Trail Blazers are 0 and 2 in the tournament and will have their third game tomorrow, as the take on the Bulls, who have on their roster another former Tar Heel in Deon Thompson. Lakers Trail Blazers Box Score(Click to enlarge the Image) The third game from last night had the Cleveland Cavaliers going at it with the Memphis Grizzlies, and for the squad from C-Town it was seven footer Tyler Zeller taking the court in the middle. The second year pro, who played just over 30 minutes in this one, came close to a double double, scoring 11 points (5 for 9 ~ 0 for 0 ~ 1 for 2) while grabbing nine boards. Zeller probably would have gotten his double double had he not fouled out of the game, but then again, with six turnovers on the night, had he stayed on he might have gotten a triple double that no one wants to get. In the end, as far as the game was concerned, it was Cleveland winning a low scoring affair by the final of 69 to 58. With the win the Cavs are 2 and 0 in Las Vegas and will play next today at 6:00 p.m. PT when they take on the Pelicans. Cavs Grizzlies Box Score Finally, in the game that should have seen John Henson play, he, along with another eight players, was not utilized by the Milwaukee coaching staff, as Milwaukee defeated New Orleans 69 to 61. With that the Bucks are 2 and 0 in the NBA Summer League and will take on the Warriors tomorrow at 6:30 p.m PT.
