NBA.com staff reports

Jul 4, 2018 2:15 AM ET

John Collins picked up the slack, scoring 19 points to go with seven rebounds.

A look at top performers from Day 2 in Salt Lake City and Sacramento:

Derrick White, San Antonio Spurs

White was sizzling in the first quarter, scoring 15 points on just eight shots and seemingly getting everything he wanted from inside and outside. The second-year guard from Colorado finished with a team-high 21 points and nine assists, leading the Spurs to an easy win over the Hawks.  

John Collins, Atlanta Hawks

With the team’s top draft pick Trae Young struggling to find his shot (he’s 9 for 36 from the field after two games), Collins has been a bright spot for the Hawks. The second-year center from Wake Forest powered his way to 19 points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes against the Spurs, shooting 50 percent from the floor.

Highlights: Spurs 103, Hawks 81

Jaron Blossomgame, San Antonio Spurs

Blossomgame – who has the perfect name for a developing player – picked up a double-double, collecting 16 points and 10 rebounds. The 59th pick in the 2017 Draft, Blossomgame was hyperactive on defense and added two blocks and a steal in 28 minutes.

Kobi Simmons and Wayne Selden Jr., Memphis Grizzlies

The backcourt mates combined for 40 points and made numerous clutch plays on both ends of the floor in the final two minutes as the Grizzlies fought off the Jazz. Simmons, a second-year pro from Arizona, finished with 20 points and five rebounds. Selden, a third-year player from Kansas, scored 20 points and added four rebounds and six assists.

Tony Bradley, Utah Jazz

The big man from North Carolina picked up his second double-double in as many nights, collecting 18 points and 14 rebounds in 24 minutes.  A 2017 draft pick, Bradley had 11 points and 11 rebounds in Monday’s opener.

Highlights: Grizzlies 95, Jazz 92

Derrick Jones Jr. Miami Heat

After leading Miami on Day 1 with 24 points, the athletic guard once again sparked Miami with a team-high 21 points on 8-for-14 shooting in 22 minutes. Jones, known for his highlight-reel dunks and defensive prowess, is proving worthy of the two-year deal he signed Sunday.

Duncan Robinson, Miami Heat

The undrafted sharpshooter from Michigan is making a case for a potential roster spot. Robinson scored 19 points in an efficient 19 minutes. The  6-foot-8 forward was 5-for-6 from 3-point range to help Miami rout the Lakers.

Highlights: Heat 89, Lakers 74

Jacob Evans, Golden State Warriors

After missing the opener in Sacramento due to a toe injury, the Warriors’ first-round pick scored 13 points in the Warriors’ rout of the Kings. The 28th pick was 5-for-12 from the field (but just 1-for-5 from 3-point range). Evans also added five rebounds and two steals in the Warriors’ easy win.

Frank Mason & Justin Jackson, Sacramento Kings

With No. 2 overall pick Marvin Bagley III strugging (seven points on 3-for-16 shooting), the Kings’ 2017 draftees tried to keep Sacramento afloat vs. the Warriors. Jackson led the team with 20 points and five rebounds while Mason finished with 16 points on 5-for-10 shooting with five assists and three steals.

Highlights: Warriors 71, Kings 54
