Now three days into the summer league and the Pacers remain undefeated at 3-0 while the Netsers haven’t gotten their first win yet and are still 0-3. I have to admit I didn’t get to see much of Day 3’s games, I only saw little pieces of each game so most of my judgments are going to be off the boxscores, which I know doesn’t always tell the full story, but we’ll see how we do.
Indiana’s Twin Towers – The Pacers combination of Tyler Hansbrough and Roy Hibbert were absolutely dominant against the Jazz. Now you do have to consider who they were playing, Larry Turner and Goran Suton, but even still you can’t knock their performance. They combined for 45 points and 13 rebounds.
Russell Westbrook – I could have put Westbrook in the winners column after each game because he’s played good in each game. He’s getting the nod today not just for his scoring though, but also for his all around play. Besides the 26 points, he got to the free throw line 8 times, had 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals.
Richard Hendrix – Former NBDL All-Star is doing his best to turn GM’s heads. On Day 3 he was good for 17 points and 12 rebounds on 6 of 9 shooting. A lot of teams can use that production from their power forward.
Eric Maynor – A day after making the winner’s list, Maynor finds his way to the dark side. In 25 minutes, Maynor was 2 of 9 from the floor with only 5 points and only handed out 3 assists. The Jazz’s summer league squad simply needs more production from him.
Robert Swift – One of the games I actually got to see most of and Swift is a fumbling clumsy center. During one stretch, three straight possessions Swift either fumbled the ball or had it stripped from him when he was in a position to score.
Chris Douglas-Roberts – Following CDR’s 5 points and 1 shot in 28 mintes of play, CDR tweeted this himself: Wow is all I can say. Me too.
