Summer League in Las Vegas is a delightful way for NBA fans to get their basketball fix in the summer months. They can watch rookies make their debuts, returning players fight for roster spots, or they can just come to watch some good old fashioned basketball. That said, no one really wants overtime games in Summer League, and they definitely don’t want double overtime.
On Tuesday night, the Summer League game between the Warriors and Timberwolves actually went to double overtime, tied at 76. But that is when Sudden Death kicked in. The first team to score a point wins. Literally. The winning basket cannot come on a free throw so as you’ll see here, it ends on a floater. Beautiful. The Timberwolves went on to beat the Warriors 78-76.
Hill helped bring Utah along as a game-changer in the backcourt despite missing 33 games due to injury. He’s not the scorer, passer, or playmaker that CP3 or Lowry are, but like those two, Hill is a steadying force. Utah would love to bring him back, but a salary crunch and big offers out there for Hill may lead him to leave.
If Hill’s medical records check out, he’d be a huge aid to a team looking to make a leap with a need at point guard. The Bucks, Nuggets, and Pelicans would be stellar landing spots if they can open the space.
Limited Womens Cody Latimer Jersey Holiday struggled to find his way with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, but the trio came along as the season wrapped up. The Pelicans were in a bind: if they didn’t pay up to retain Holiday, they wouldn’t have cap space to chase someone like Lowry, Hill, or someone slightly lower on this list. It was much easier to pay big for Holiday than pay slightly less for Jeff Teague or Patty Mills because of Bird rights.
Limited Womens Jermaine Gresham Jersey Holiday can defend — a must for this team at the point — and is a passable deep shooter. Time may be all he and the Twin Towers need to make it work, provided he can remain healthy.
