Trey Lyles was Fantastic in his Second Summer League Game

Trey Lyles is looking comfortable on an NBA court entering his second season.  Lyles led all scorers with 26 points on 8-21 shooting.  He also hauled in 11 rebounds and a pair of assists.

His team lost, but after watching this you’ll agree with me — he was the real winner of the night.

(h/t to Scott Charlton for the Vines)

He didn’t just dunk on people, he extended his range beyond the three-point arc.

The second-best player on the court tonight in Utah was James Young.  Young led the Celtics in scoring with 17 points, knocking down 4-5 three-pointers.  This trey put the game out of reach on the way to an 89-82 victory.

You’re probably thinking that Young simply spent the game posting up behind the three-point line, but that wasn’t the case.  The man got after it on D, picking Aaron Craft’s pocket.

As happy as I am for the two from Kentucky, Craft’s sadness gives me more joy.

      That’s not necessarily true. A good percentage of the guys in the summer league and, to a lesser extent, the D-league have already current contracts with NBA teams, but they are being sent to these places for development purposes. Especially in the summer league, it’s not uncommon to see some big-name talent.

    Glad to see both of those guys doing well. I know it is the Summer League but they are still playing against some talented dudes.

    Plus Young is an outstanding passer, according to some.
