Anfernee Simons’ 35 points weren’t enough to carry the Portland Trail Blazers over a balanced performance by the Utah Jazz.
Anfernee Simons Goes Off For 35
Simons, the Blazers 2018 first-round pick, went 6-7 from deep on his way to 35 points, on 13-18 shooting. In addition to 35 points, he also contributed six rebounds, two assists and two steals in the loss. Simons had an opportunity to tie the game late, but suffered a nasty looking twisted ankle on his final drive.
Tony Bradley Continues to Impress
Bradley, the first-round draft pick by the Jazz in 2018, continues to dominate the paint in the Summer League. He put up 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in a balanced Jazz performance. Bradley’s consistent performance should put him in the mix for playing time behind Rudy Gobert this season for the Jazz.
Other Notable Performances
Former college trombonist/basketball player Tanner McGrew led the Jazz in scoring with 17 points, going 5-8 from three-point range.
Gary Trent Jr had an off night for the Blazers, scoring 12 points on 4-15 shooting.
