Minnesota 79, San Antonio 68

Randy Foye helped the Minnesota Timberwolves stake an early 15-point lead as he scored 12 of the T-Wolves first 20 points en route to an easy 79-68 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

“I came out and hit my first couple of shots,” Foye said of his quick start. “I felt really good out there today.”

Foye scored a game-high 22 points (8-19 FG) in 38 minutes of play. He displayed great leadership, scoring at will and setting up teammates for easy baskets.

“With this being my second year, I see myself as a leader on this (summer league) team,” Foye said of taking a leadership role. “I’m the point guard, so I have to control the tempo and be a general out there.”

Big man Craig Smith also had a nice game with 21 points (7-12 FG, 7-9 FT) and five rebounds, while rookie Corey Brewer struggled with his shooting (1-10 FG), but managed to score eight points and grab 13 rebounds.

“I’m a rookie, so everything is different,” Brewer said of his second NBA summer league game. “I just have to take it day-by-day. Randy (Foye), Rashad (McCants) and Craig (Smith) have been looking out for me.”

The Spurs went on a 10-0 run in the second quarter to cut the lead to just five with 1:00 left in the second quarter, but could not get any closer the rest of the game.

Marcellus Sommerville led San Antonio in scoring with 13 points (6-8 FG) and six rebounds in just 17 minutes of play. Big man Jackie Butler continued to show improvement, scoring 11 points (4-7 FG) and collecting six rebounds in 31 minutes of action.
