Jazz to Face #1 Pick Simmons, Sixers

The 2016 Utah Jazz Summer League will come to an end when the Jazz take on the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at 7 p.m. at the University of Utah's Jon M. Huntsman Center.

Both the Jazz and Sixers will be looking for their first win of the week.

Second-year forward Trey Lyles is averaging 19.5 points and 11.5 rebounds through two games this week, and has been Utah’s only consistent scorer. He’s gone 4-for-11 (36.4 percent) from 3-point range and 11-for-14 (78.6 percent) from the free-throw line. Second-round draft picks Joel Bolomboy, Marcus Paige and Tyrone Wallace have each logged at least 10 minutes in each of Utah’s two games. Paige leads the group in scoring at 7.0 points per game.

Philadelphia will be led by No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons, who finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists in his debut Monday night. He left that game late in the fourth quarter with severe leg cramps and did not play on Tuesday against San Antonio. 

Center Christian Wood is averaging 19.5 points through two games this week, while Richaun Holmes and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot are also players to watch for the Sixers.
