Keegan Murray 14 juillet 2022

Keegan Murray was solid against Chet Holmgren

Seventh night of Summer League and more than four (four more). Last night the main event offered an enticing duel between Keegan Murray’s Kings and Chet Holmgren’s Thunder, and if the Thunder won narrowly, the two rookies were each able to excite their fans a little more. We debrief you this news crazy night finally almost ?

The results of the night:

Wolves–Bucks: nothing too crazy to put in their mouths on this first match of the evening, if not the good provisions for the Wolves of the rookie of Duke Wendell Moore Jr. or the duo of guerrillas Wendell Brown Jr. / Kevon Harris. Quiet victory however for the Bucks, carried by a Sandro Mamukelashvili whom we especially want to see in the NBA and a Marjon Beauchamp also very comfortable in Vegas. Special mention also to the contribution of Lindell Wigginton and Zylan Cheatham, whose head in the dictionary could very well serve as an illustration for the “two-way contract” page.

Bonus track: the first “real” Summer League outing for… Hugo Besson. 6 points at 2/5 from the parking lot and rebounds in 18 minutes, just enough to lick your lips for the 2023-24 season?

Cavs-Hornets: victory for the Hornets thanks in particular to a big third quarter, against the Cavs carried almost solely by the hustle of the mullet of Luke Travers and the offensive verve of the rookie Ochai Agbaji (24 points). Charlotte side a little new since rookie pivot Mark Williams is out of the box while his vintage buddy Bryce McGowens confirms his beautiful Summer League. Good contribution from the bench also with the rugby player Manek or a fairly easy Kai Jones.

Bonus track: LiAngelo Ball who stuck his nose out the window, like every summer, confirming his status as Laurent Ournac of the NBA.

Wizards–Pelicans: the goal for the Pels was first and foremost to bounce back from the terrible announcement the previous day regarding rookie EJ Liddell, and while victory won’t bring the rookie back until 2023 it may be a bit of a comfort to the volatiles of Louisiana. The Pels who have been spinning this night since most of the leaders of this summer roster were absent (Trey Murphy, Naji Marshall, injured Dyson Daniels and Alvarado who still hasn’t put on the shorts in Vegas), and the leaders of the night are therefore called Daeqwon Plowdell (delighted), Dereon Seabron (connai po), Jared Harper and especially Deividas Syrvidis, drafted in 2019 and who played against the Wizards the Lithuanian on duty by slamming six shots from the parking lot . For Washington it’s bleak plain, Johnny Davis trots and Joe Biden eats mashed potatoes with a straw.

Bonus track: the swag reunion of the Pels’ youth in the backcourt, with an ogre on the left.

Raptors–Jazz: do we really have to summarize a match in which one of the two teams did not deign to bring in Tacko Fall? The answer is in the question so let’s boycott this Jazz and only note the victory of the Dinos thanks to the known faces of NBA Dalano Banton and DJ Wilson. Christian Koloko continues to make the Canadian-Cameroonian community dream, we will monitor the Official Journal of the Republic.

Bonus track: we often talk about sons O’Neal and Pippen in Los Angeles, but know that the big kid of Ron Harper is also in the place in Vegas and that he artillery with a jersey of the Raptors.

Kings–Thunder: the main event of this (not) magical night, with the clash between two of the most anticipated and prominent rookies of this July competition. Oklahoma City won, is that really the most important thing, and in the absence of Josh Giddey – finally rested – Chet Holmgren got to show off his defensive skills while Jalen Williams confirmed the good pick of Sam Presti and the Frenchie Ousmane Dieng and Tre Mann finally met this famous girl called Natacha 50% shooting success. Despite the Thunder’s fairly quiet victory, the best player of the match is nevertheless named Keegan Murray, the No. 4 in the Draft having once again enraged the Kings fanbase with this time his best match of the competition and even a quite honorable defense throughout his 34 minutes. 29 pawns for the one who could leave with the trophy (there is none) of best scorer in the SL, 29 pawns at 9/17 in shooting added to 7 rebounds and 4 steals, no but really, strongly that Mike Brown get him off the bench so as not to overshadow Chimezie Metu.

Bonus track: Frankie Ferrari’s new great outing with 4 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 pit stops.

Heat–Sixers: If basketball had a museum in Las Vegas, there wouldn’t be any paintings of this game in that museum. A basketball atrocity and a record here of three minutes before zapping onto something else. Trevelin Queen and Tyler Bey provided the essentials for Phillyof the Sixers who did not activate Jaden Springer for this match which, let’s be honest, already took away a lot of shine from this wonderful display.

Bonus track: Jean-Marie Bouyea and Marcus Garrett who combine a delicious 1/19 in shooting while Javonte Smart really takes himself for Kobe for a week with another 26 shots taken last night. In the end for the Heat? 23/84 or 27.4% shooting, enough to bring out the 2 hour omelette as quickly as it came in.

Nuggets – Clippers: if we recently learned that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had been signed for the duration and integrated into the starting five of Mike Malone, it is more the rookies Christian Braun or Ismael Kamagate that we are watching this summer on the grounds of Vegas . Perfect, tonight the Jayhawks rookie cracked a 1/10 shot and the Frenchie barely spoiled us with 2 points, 3 rebounds and 3 blocks. The credit for Denver’s victory goes more to the address of Jack White off the bench or the puntos of Matt Mitchell and Colin Gillespie, yeah, we don’t know who these people are either. In front ? No Moussa Diabaté after his nice match the day before, and a rather crazy propensity this night to send huge cinder blocks two out of three possessions.

Bonus tracks: Justin Bean’s entry into the game for the Clippers, so we can finally say that Mr. Bean played in the NBA.
