Mountain Dew Orlando Pro Summer League Wrap-Up: Day 5

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN SPORTS) – As the week comes down to the last day of the league portion of the week, there are three games left to help decide the Mountain Dew Orlando Pro Summer League Championship Day schedule at Amway Center Wednesday July 5, 2017. The week’s top overall team to this point, the Indiana Pacers, had the day off as well as the Miami Heat.

 

Orlando 84 – New York 73

After not playing in Orlando’s previous game and having an extra day off with the Magic not playing on the 4th of July, Katin Lucas took advantage of the extra rest. Lucas scored 20 points and made a statement as a potential 3rd point guard prospect in leading the Magic to finish play this week at 2-2. He used his experience from playing with the Magic’s G-League team and his time playing overseas to cause all types of problems for the Knicks backcourt.

Przemek Karnoswki had 14 points in his 1st game with the team after spending the opening four days as a member of Charlotte’s summer league team. He was added after the team released Stephen Zimmerman earlier in the week. New York finished their week at 0-4 and were led by Jamel Artis, who had 13 points.

Orlando will end their summer league week playing in the 5th place game against the Charlotte Hornets. New York will play for 7th place against the Miami Heat.

 

Detroit 87 – Charlotte 82

Henry Ellenson scored 29 points as he led Detroit to the Championship game as they defeated the Hornets. Ellenson continued his hot shooting week as he knocked down 12 of his 20 attempted field goals including four 3-pointers. Pierre Jackson, who hit the game-winning shot on Tuesday against Miami, scored 15 points off the bench. Also Luke Kennard scored 14 for the Pistons.

Charlotte was led by Johnny O’Bryant III, who had a team-high 26 points and at one point in the game was matching Ellenson basket for basket. Charlotte finishes at 2-2 and will play Orlando in the 5th place game. Detroit will play Dallas in the Championship game on Thursday.

 

Dallas 96 – Oklahoma City 75

Dallas used a 35-12 opening quarter to remain undefeated at 4-0 and cruised their way into the Championship game. Brandon Paul led a balance scoring attack with 20 points. The Mavericks had six guys finish with 10 or more points and hit 15 3-point shots in the game. Paul had six of them and Luis Montero went a perfect 5 for 5 from downtown. Montero also had 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals in his 19 minutes of playing time.

Oklahoma City (2-2) was led by Dakari Johnson, who scored 18 points. Semaj Christian had 16 points and 8 assists for the Thunder. Oklahoma City will play Indiana for 3rd place in the Championship Thursday.
