The Defending champions of Las Vegas Summer League aren’t looking in good shape as they suffered their second loss of the tournament, a 75-55 game to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday afternoon
No. 7 overall pick in 2017 draft Lauri Markkanen managed 8 points (shot 1-of-12 and 0-of-10 from the arc) and grabbed 9 rebounds and made 4 blocks in the loss.
Chicago’s first-round pick in 2016 Denzel Valentine played from every corner a little bit scoring 4 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, and 4 steals.
Experienced Kris Dunn has left Las Vegas due to personal reasons and will out of the Bulls’ summer league campaign and Paul Zipser, who sat out in the game against Hawks due to a sprained left ankle is also doubtful of play on Tuesday.
After the narrow loss to the Grizzlies, 91-88 in their Summer League opener, the Wizards experienced a “Deja Vu” as they lost another close 91- 87 game to the Miami Heat Monday night.
Sheldon McClellan led the Wizards with 18 points (6-of-10 shots), grabbed four rebounds and an assist. McClellan’s aggressive play was bolstered by Jared Cunningham, who finished with 16 points, 3 rebounds, and an assist.
Wizards gave up 23 turnovers to the Heat which was a huge drawback in their play. They will hope to fix their thing with “turnovers” when they clash on against the Bulls Squad on Tuesday
