No picnic for opponents of Yogi

Yogi made no boo boos Saturday. 
Yogi Ferrell was the most efficient player on a winning team Saturday, during the second day of play in the NBA Las Vegas Summer League. The Dallas Mavericks, sophomore guard scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 3-pt., 1-1 FT), grabbed five rebounds, dished four assists, and snared three steals in 25 minutes. Dallas beat Chicago handily 91-75 in front of a capacity crowd at the Thomas and Mack Center. 

The big news Saturday; Markelle Fultz, the number one overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft, sprained his left ankle. It appears highly unlikely that Fultz will play again for the Philadelphia 76'ers in the tournament which runs through July 17th.
