So two days into the Orlando Pro Summer League and teams are sorting out a little bit. The Pacers behind their huge frontline is 2-0 and the team with presumably the most talent (since they’ve combined two teams) the Nets/Phila hybrid is 0-2. Everyone else, 1-1. With that..onto the winners and losers!
Ryan Anderson – Ryan Anderson is using this Orlando Summer league as his own personal playground. He followed up his Game 1, 21 and 7 with a monster 33 and 14. Shooting 73% from the floor. Doing it in front of his home fans too, Orlando should be proud.
Eric Maynor – While his stat lines weren’t ridicolous, this is the one game I saw in its entirety and virtually everything the Jazz were getting offensively was coming from the creativity of Maynor. Whether he got the assist or the score himself, all their open looks were created by Maynor. Pretty impressive to watch.
Roy Hibbert – Following up his loser performance on Day 1, Hibbert comes back with an impressive 24 and 8, and going 7 of 8 from the floor and schooling rookie B.J. Mullens in the process.
Courtney Fells – Who? Exactly. Courtney is a guy trying to make a team or impress a GM. Well Courtney didn’t do that. With an awful shot selection Fells shot a dreadful 0-8 from the floor and 0 points. Seeya in Euro.
Marreese Speights – Him and Hibbert flip flopped on Day 2, but why wouldn’t Speights deserve to be on this list. His so called gameplan for each of these games is to shoot whenever he touches the ball, but Speights did that to the tune of only 8 points.
Nets/Sixers – C’mon, you’re combining two lottery picks along with two established NBA players and you’re only scoring 68 points? Maybe the Knicks needed to be included in this mix too?
