Las Vegas, NV — The Los AngelesClippers,coached by Tyronn Lue defeated the Atlanta Hawks 90-83 behind wa strong outing by Reggie Bullock, the Clippers lone 2013 draft pick, DaJaun Summers, and Samardo Samuels.
Reggie Bullock showed his pick and pop game along with his impressive three-point shot. Bullock is guaranteed to be on the opening day roster.
Summers has a great game even though he was waived by the Clippers earlier in the week due not wanting to offer him a partial guaranteed deal. Summers shot the ball well but as he said post game he needs to work on his defensive effort which lacked consistency in the 1st game in Vegas.
Samuels played the best of all the Clippers players. He rebounded at a high rate and showed he has finally come into a off-season/summer league in the best shape of his life.
Starting point guard Maalik Wayns finished with seven points and seven assists.
FUN FACT: Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and head coachDoc Rivers were all in attendance.
