So Caron Butler back in Bucks' division with Pistons. His stay in Western Conference was short.
Suns fell asleep with 1 second left in qtr. and Wright hit Parker with full-court pass for layup. Suns 23, Bucks 22 after one.
Home run ball for Jabari and he glasses it in at the 1st quarter horn. 23-22 Suns. Not much from Jabari, better from Giannis that quarter.
Parker not bashful with his long twos, but 0/3 so far. Similar story as Friday night.
Seth Curry and Jordan Taylor matched up at PG right now. Curry with a steal right there.
Former UW-Green Bay big man Alec Brown now in game for Suns. There came high flyer - and ex-Dayton Flyer - Chris Wright. Fouled on dunk try.
Giannis with strong drive and is fouled. He is working on half-court game. Has impressed observers here so far.
Giannis scored first 5 points for Bucks, who trail 9-8 midway through first quarter vs. Suns. Slow start for Parker with a couple TOs.
No update on Gary Payton today but he is here sitting near Jason Kidd and Bucks GM John Hammond.
Caron Butler's deal with Detroit is for 2 years, $9M.
Giannis hits an open three and then draws a foul pushing in transition. 5 quick points.
Johnny O'Bryant starting with Giannis/Jabari/Nate and CJ Williams tonight. Giannis on TJ Warren to start.
Bucks starters: Parker, Antetokounmpo, Wolters, O'Bryant and Williams. O'Bryant came off bench in first game Friday.
Former Bucks assistant Adrian Griffin coaching Bulls SL squad. Bulls finish with 103-76 victory over Nuggets. Bucks up next.
Former Marquette player Davante Gardner on floor for Bulls SL team. McDermott finishes with 31 points as he goes to bench with 3 min left.
Doug McDermott has 26 points and Tony Snell 21 through 3 quarters as Bulls SL team routing Nuggets at Cox. Each player with 5 threes.
Suns Alex Len done for rest of summer league after fracturing his right little finger. Bucks play Suns at 9 p.m. Central tonight on NBA TV.
Rosters that feature umlauts shouldn't be forced to play on day of World Cup Final. Sorry, D. Schröder.
get loose P!
So who's making the East playoffs next season? In some order Cavs, Bulls, Pacers, Heat, Raps, Wiz, Hawks, Bobs? NY teams miss out?
Following in dad's footsteps? Coby Karl is helping coach Bulls summer league team. Will play in Germany in fall.
Germany a deserving champion. Argentina defended with passion but missing early chances hurt. Sweet goal by Gotze.
Jabari Parker autographed basketball being auctioned at Summer League. Proceeds to St. Jude's hospital.
Spurs Kyle Anderson, hardly the swiftest of foot but fundamentally strong, is doing great job on Wiggins.
Also, ex-Bucks John Lucas and Todd Day are in Vegas, working LeBron's camp.
Among ex-Bucks at Summer League: Charlie Bell, Royal Ivy and Frank Brickowski.
Ex Bucks coach Frank Hamblen spent time with Phil Jackson at summer league. Wouldn't be shocked if he joins Zen Master in NY.
Cox Pavilion at UNLV is full again - to presumably watch Wiggins.
all that jelly.. no toast.
Boxing is rigged
Canelo in trouble
"...I don't want that ice cream until I get my cake up ..."
The Delonte West/Jon Brockman two-man game is why I come to Vegas every year.
Larry Sanders took entire team to dinner at P.F. Chang's on Friday. Middleton: "Getting a head start before the season is a great thing,"
Khris Middleton talking about wild scene at Cox for Parker-Wiggins: "We couldn't even find a seat until the second quarter started."
Nate Wolters had his left ankle taped at practice Saturday and said his mobility wasn't great in SL game Friday. Bucks play Sun. vs PHX.
About to start this other book by Marcus Luttrell ..a navy seal at war...thoughts ?
"...always misplacing my glasses , but always peeping the evil like, I see it clear now.."
So Brazil is the like the Roy Hibbert of the 2014 World Cup or something?
Anyone have the clip of Payton smack talking Milwaukee on Fox a couple years ago? That was pleasant.
If Jason Kidd gets Gary Payton to come back to Milwaukee then he can probably get pretty much anyone to come to Milwaukee.
Kidd on Payton: "If you look at value of his knowledge and experience for these young kids, I think it would help."
"I'm just seeing what kind of interest level he has in coaching at all, seeing where he's at," Kidd said.
Gary Payton has been around Bucks practices and sat with Jason Kidd at summer league game Fri. Could be in mix for some type of position.
If you're an NBA player looking for an agent, probably call whoever reps Jodie Meeks or Ben Gordon before Anthony Morrow's agent.
A mediocre Lakers team wouldn't be complete without Nick Young. The Nic Cage of basketball.
Biggest annoyance with LeBron going to Cleveland: makes Austin Carr's doddering exuberance that much harder to listen to on LP.
Boylan said Cavs were practicing when news of LeBron retruning came down. Amazingly, practice did not stop. But everything changed.
Former Bucks assistant Jim Boylan now with Cavs, was smiling broadly after SL game. Why not? Just added LeBron and saw Wiggins play well.
Young Q out here gettin right
Wolters gets it back after intentionally missing second, but his contested three clangs wide. Bucks lose 70-68. Whatever.
Down three, Jabari goes baseline on Wiggins and hangs for the nice finish. Dellavedova to the line with Cavs up 1, 8.9 seconds left.
Jabari's putback slam rims out as Bucks can't tie it up, but Wolters keeps them alive with high banking finish. Cavs ball 67-65, 13.8 left.
Bad fourth for Bucks, but Jabari contorts for bucket over Wiggins and Giannis goes full Stretch Armstrong for and-one.
Bucks getting bogged down in halfcourt and not hitting any jumpers either. Non-Giannis Bucks are 0/13 on threes.
Cavs lead by one and Bucks scoreless so far in fourth. Interesting Giannis said yesterday he needs to work on his half-court offense.
Parker showing his skills and Giannis just came up with a block at rim. Giannis getting a chance to handle ball in this game as well.
Bucks lead 55-48 entering final quarter. Giannis with 14 points and Parker 12. Wiggins looking good for Cavs with 18 points.
Thanasis and Giannis now with 13 fouls on day - 7 and 6, respectively. That's summer league.
Johnny O'Bryant with nice pass to cutting Chris Wright, then finishes with left out of the post.
Giannis has struggled to finish plays in the halfcourt but strong dribble off closeout and gets to rim for hoop/harm. Now game-high 14.
Giannis with thunder dunk and now a 3-point play after leaving Bennett behind.
Parker draws the foul on Wiggins, but his length is bothering Jabari from mid-range. Blocked earlier.
Giannis and Wiggins is the matchup exciting folks, too.
Fans who went out in hall for halftime having a hard time getting back in because gym is so crowded. They have to line up to be let back in.
Bucks up 39-37 at half. Parker 11 pts (3/6 fg, 5/7 ft)/5r/1a/1to, Giannis 9 pts (3/5 fg, 2/2 threes, 1/1 ft)/3r/1a/2to
HT: Bucks 39, Cavaliers 37. Parker with 11 points/5 rebounds and showed passing ability as well.
A view from my seat and the packed house at Cox Pavilion. http://t.co/pkm6RF94db
First quarter was slow, but Parker, Wiggins and Giannis now showing why this gym is standing room only. The kids are alright.
Wiggins looking good with 11 points and Parker also shining with 11. No disappointments here. Giannis with 9 and a pair of 3s.
