Orlando Summer League Day 6 Recap

Rick Kamla and Stu Jackson recap Day 6 of the Orlando Summer League.

A daily look at the standout performers of the day at the Summer League in Orlando and Salt Lake City. Here are the day's top players for Day 6:


By Fran Blinebury

Stanley Johnson, Detroit Pistons

Pistons vs. Heat

Stanley Johnson scores 20 points and grabs nine rebounds as the Pistons beat the Heat, 71-58. Rodney McGruder had a team high 14 points.

Johnson hadn't shot the ball well all week, but he came out ready for the showdown against Justise Winslow in a battle of unbeaten teams and took over. After stroking a first quarter 3-pointer, he turned to the press table and announced: "It's on." It was. Johnson's 20 points, nine rebounds and three steals led the Pistons rout of the Heat.

Brice Johnson, Los Angeles Clippers

Clippers vs. Magic White

Rookie Brice Johnson scores 19 points and grabs eight rebounds but the Clippers fall to Orlando Magic White 79-69.

The athletic forward has recovered from a shaky first day in Orlando to play strong and display a variety of skills. The Clippers lost to Orlando White, but Johnson looked again like a rookie who might be able to contribute right away, shooting 6-for-7 for 19 points with seven rebounds.

Nick Johnson, Orlando Magic Blue

Everybody knows that Johnson can light it up from long range and he didn't disappoint by nailing 3 of 5 treys. But it was the nine dimes he dropped on his teammates that caught your attention in the 96-94 win over the Mavericks.

Kyle Anderson, San Antonio Spurs

Simmons Throws It Down

Off the steal by Kyle Anderson, Anderson leads the break before dropping it off to the trailing Johnathan Simmons for the slam.

Anderson finished a very successful Salt Lake City portion of summer league with 23 points, 10 assists and seven assists in the 87-86 loss to the Celtics. That came after he averaged 24 points and 7.5 rebounds in just 28.5 minutes the first two games while shooting 60.6 percent.

Terry Rozier, Boston Celtics

Postgame: Terry Rozier

Terry Rozier talks with the media following his 23 points and big game-winning 3-pointer to beat the Spurs.

One of the better players in Salt Lake City finished with his best showing, contributing 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the 87-86 victory over the Spurs. Rozier also had the game-winning shot in the final seconds, a three-pointer while being fouled.
