You just never know what you will see in the Summer League. Friday I saw Pistons’ Trainer Mike Abdenour receive two technical fouls and get himself ejected from the Detroit/Lakers summer matchup from Vegas.
Orlando’s eight team Summer League wrapped up Friday. The Player of the Day for day five of the Orlando Summer League was Paul Davis. The former Michigan State BIG scored 24 points, and snatched eight rebounds in just 24 minutes, helping Orlando to an 80-77 win over Charlotte. It was the Magic’s only win of the five-game week.
