The Nets, led by Cam Thomas, enter the game with a 2-1 record; coming off a nice win over the Washington Wizards. Thomas led the way with 31 points.
On the other side of the ball, Tre Jones has put on quite the show for the Spurs, leading them to their first victory of the summer with a 34-point performance against the Hornets.
Tre Jones (34 Points, 8 rebounds, and 9 assists on 12-of-20 shooting)
Thursday was undoubtedly the most memorable Summer League outing we’ve seen from any Spur thus far. And the offensive outburst from Tre Jones was arguably the best performance from any player through five days in Las Vegas. The second-year guard did a little bit of everything for San Antonio on their way to a well-deserved dub.
The first thing that immediately stood out was Tre’s ability to get to the rim at will and finish through contact. He routinely punished big men for switching on the perimeter, and his game-winning go-ahead layup came via a screen to get him a mismatch with Kai Jones as the clock ticked down. His poise was remarkable, and his execution was immaculate.
