Before the Kings and Rockets Summer League championship game, many of the young players, including Nick Johnson, Ben McLeMore and Quincy Acy, did their best to top the pre-game shootarounds that DeAndre & Blake do before some Clippers’ games.
The dunk fest continued after tip-off, especially from Nick Johnson who threw down a reverse alley-oop and scored a team-high 17 points for the Rockets. But it was the 4th quarter shooting by the Kings, led by tournament MVP Ray McCallum and his game-high 29 points (28 after the 1st quarter), that was the main story and reason for the Kings 77-68 win.
”Guys were laying it on the line,” McCallum said. ”But it’s a championship game. You’ve got to bring your `A’ game. We just had to find a way to push through toward the end and as a collective group we found a way to get it done.”
