The Golden State Warriors' quest to win the inaugural Las Vegas Summer League tournament will continue tonight at 7 p.m. PDT on NBA TV.
I'm not even going to try to extract a contrived Beat LA theme out of this because I can't promise the quality of play will be worthy of that.
But Tom Lewis of SBNation.com has a brief summary of the key players for the L.A. Lakers.
Players to watch: The Lakers look to move on in the Summer League tournament behind the solid play of Lester Hudson. The guard is averaging almost 11 points per game while making 45% of his three-point shots. Forward Marcus Landry leads the Lakers in scoring with 15.5 points per game.
Another player who has supposedly been playing well is Chris Douglas-Roberts, whose Tumblr post about his relationship with Kobe Bryant is worth a read if you haven't seen it previously. SBN's James Herbert recently had an interview about CDR's career.
We're winning. You know what I mean, we're winning games and I feel like that's the most important thing. You have to do your part. Individually you're not going to get big numbers here because it's 10-minute quarters, everybody's playing, the games are low-scoring, so you kind of just have to do your part.
With a win, the Warriors would face the winner of the contest between the Charlotte Bobcats and D-League Select team, which features a pair of Santa Cruz Warriors players, at 5 p.m. today
