Luis Scola scores 15, Juan Pablo Vaulet 2 as Argentina loses to Nigeria in friendly game

CABB Argentina

Just before the Summer League finals between the Bulls and Timberwolves Monday night, the Argentine and Nigerian national teams faced off at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Playing without Manu Ginobili and Carlos Delfino, Argentina lost, 96-92 in a hard-fought game.  Luis Scola, who the Nets signed to a one-year, $5.5 million contract last week, finished the game with 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting, seven rebounds and two blocks in 27 minutes. Scola also shot 1-of-5 from deep.  Nets stash Juan Pablo Vaulet, who will not travel to Rio with the national team, played seven minutes, all in the first half, scoring two points on 1-of-2 shooting.

Argentina plays Nigeria again Wednesday in Las Vegas, then Team USA on Friday which will be nationally televised.
