Syracuse In The Summer League

I figured since I don't do much on here, I would at least try to help update you on what is going on in the NBA Summer League which started last night and will continue in Las Vegas until July 19th. The link to the website for it is and they even have a feature where you can watch the games online, though for the cost of $14.99. If you can do it within the next few hours, you might catch the Kings (with Donte Greene) playing the Warriors at 8pm EST and the debut of Minnesota's summer team featuring Flynn, Harris and maybe Etan Thomas at 10pm EST against the Houston Rockets (with Darryl Watkins on their roster). So here is what I found earlier today.

Sacramento Kings lost to the Detroit Pistons 86-77
Donte Greene had 11 points, 7 rebounds, 1 steal,and 2 turnovers going 3-9 from field goal range and 0-2 from the three point line in 28 minutes played for the Kings.

Houston Rockets beat the Golden State Warriors 73-69
Darryl Watkins went scoreless in two attempts with 3 assists, 1 rebound, 2 steals, and 5 turnovers in 15 minutes of play playing for Houston's summer team.

Toronto Raptors lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 85-84
Demetris Nichols finished with 7 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist while going 1-4 from field goal range, 0-1 from three point land and 5-6 from the free throw line in 14 minutes of play for Toronto's' summer team.

Today's action featured Toronto playing Detroit already in progress and as of this writing, Detroit was winning 49-44 at half time and Demetris Watkins had yet to see any playing time for Toronto.
