In one of the more competitive NBA Summer League games thus far, the Utah Jazz defeated the San Antonio Spurs 84-81, thanks to a pair of second-round picks, Jarrell Brantley and Miye Oni.
Brantley and Oni Come Up Big
The Jazz used two of their 2019 second-round picks on Jarrell Brantley and Miya Oni, and both rookies showed up in a big way against the Spurs. Brantley put up 16 points and 6 rebounds on 6/14 shooting, including a thunderous dunk in the first half. Oni was equally impressive. His 17 points and 6 rebounds, including a 4/8 performance from deep, helped fuel the Jazz to the win.
Lonnie Walker IV Impresses Again
Walker IV continues to put up solid numbers for the Spurs. He contributed 19 points and 8 rebounds, but missed a potential game-tying three at the buzzer. He is now averaging 19.5 point in the Summer League.
Other Notable Performances
Jazz G-League veteran Willie Reed came through with a 16 and 14 double-double, dominating younger players in the paint.
Spurs big man Drew Eubanks was also impressive on the interior, putting up 15 and 7.
