Despite 48 combined from Jazz trio, Utah drops first Vegas Summer League matchup against Portland
The Jazz had little Vegas luck in their first Summer League game, losing to a deep Portland Trail Blazers squad: 78 to 93. Utah's summer core of Tony Bradley, Georges Niang and Duke rookie Grayson Allen played well in the noon contest, combining for 48 of the team's 78 total points with Allen and Bradley tallying six rebounds each. However, 20 points from Wade Baldwin IV—despite getting ejected in the fourth quarter for a "hostile act" against Allen—was enough to lift the Blazers over the Jazz.
Utah will play the Knicks tomorrow at 6pm at Cox Pavillion. The game will air on NBATV.
