Playing without lottery pick Kris Dunn, the Wolves won their 4th straight game on Sunday to advance to Monday’s Summer League championship game against Chicago. Tyus Jones scored a game-high 29 to go with 6 assists in the 4th win and was also named to the All-NBA Summer League 1st team and MVP of the summer league.
In 7 games, Jones averaged 19.4 points on 45.7 percent shooting to go with 6.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals. His most memorable game came on Saturday when he hit the game-winning free-throws after a Reggie Miller worthy flop at the end.
Joining Jones on the All-NBA Summer League 2016 1st Team are Jordan McRae (Cleveland), Bobby Portis (Chicago), Ben Simmons(Philadelphia) and Alan Williams (Phoenix).
Jaylen Brown (Boston), Thon Maker (Milwaukee), Kelly Oubre Jr. (Washington), Normal Powell (Toronto) and Tyler Ulis (Phoenix) round out the Second Team.
