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. Im 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.
Im 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.
