Summer League Day 11 Recap


Tuesday was a relatively light day for Kentucky players competing in the NBA Summer League.  There were only 2 games featuring former Cats on the fifth day of play in the Las Vegas league.


Boston and Philadelphia proved to be a fairly entertaining game with the outcome in doubt until the final seconds.  Ultimately, Boston defeated the Sixers 88-83, dropping them to 1-2 in Vegas.  The Celtics have been undefeated in Vegas.  Alex Poythress once again played significant minutes (27) but he didn’t get off a lot of shots (4 FGA and 1 3FGA).  He ended the game with 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.  While his stat line was not spectacular, Poy continued to do all the little things on the court; defending, setting screens, and blocking out.   Teammate Aaron Harrison had a rather quiet night as well, scoring 6 points and grabbing 1 board.


Bam Adebayo has been arguably the most consistent player in the Summer League.   It is apparent the Bam has continued to work on his body as well as his game since leaving Kentucky and he seems to improve with every game.  (How about shooting over 79% from the free throw line?).  In the preliminaries’ final, the Heat lost, but Bam still had another impressive outing, missing another double-double by a single rebound (13 points, 9 boards).  He also added 3 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block to round out his evening.  It’s no wonder Pat Riley has that smile in his eyes when he’s watching Bam.
