After dropping their first game of Summer League to the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Dallas Mavericks bounced back on Monday night, defeating the Philadelphia 76ers in what ended up being a come-from-behind victory.
Philadelphia was up by as many as 18 points, but by the time the fourth quarter rolled around, the Mavericks had pulled things all the way back and were within striking distance.
In the fourth quarter, Dallas shot 12-of-19 (63.2%) from the field and 2-for-4 (50.0%) from behind the three-point line. Meanwhile, they held the 76ers to 5-of-16 (31.3%) shooting from the field and 1-for-7 (14.3%) from distance.
Dallas entered the final frame down 91-74 but ended up winning the contest by a score of 111-103. For those counting at home, that’s a 37-14 quarter in favor of the Mavericks.
It was an utterly dominant performance, but who were the standout performers? Once again, we have three studs and two duds from the game, but first, let’s look at some guys who didn’t make the list.
Jaden Hardy won’t be a stud on this list, though he probably should be. Hardy’s awesome fourth quarter helped bring the Mavericks back into the game, but he was brutal for the majority of the rest of the game.
His inefficiency was a part of the reason Dallas was down by a lot in the first place, but he picked things up, so he also avoids a place on the duds list.
McKinley Wright IV also won’t be making an appearance on the list. His scoring could have landed him on the studs list, but his tunnel vision could have landed him on the dud list. But he won’t be on either.
With all that in mind, let’s get to it. Here are three studs and two duds from the Mavericks’ Summer League win over the 76ers.
