Cats Start Strong in the Summer League

Dakari Johnson brought his D-League success into the NBA Summer League.  In his debut he was one rebound away from a double-double, finishing with 12 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks.  With time winding down in the first half, Dakari finished strong at the rim to give the Thunder a four-point lead.

Johnson’s Thunder defeated Marquis Teague’s Dallas Mavericks 86-85.  Teague’s performance was probably a surprise for many.  Teague was a go-to scorer for the Mavs, scoring 13 points along with 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.  Even though he’s slated to play in The Basketball Tournament with The Bluegrass Boys, his Summer League could keep him in the NBA.

It’s almost halftime in Aaron Harrison’s debut for the Hornets.  He’s off to a slow start with only two points, but we all know he’s at his best at the end of the game.  You can catch the action on NBATV.  Stick around after to see Alex Poythress in action for the Magic.

    Dakari made such a bad decision and cost the cats, while not benefiting himself. We would have used him last year. Why post about a person that doesn’t care about UK?
