Lakers vs Warriors Summer League 2022 Preview
Scotty Pippen Jr. scored 14 points in his NBA Summer League debut with the Los Angeles Lakers, and he looks to do more.
Pippen Jr., the son of former Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen, helped the Lakers beat the Miami Heat 100-66 on July 2 in the California Classic. The undrafted former Vanderbilt star also grabbed six rebounds and dished three assists.
“Coach [Phil] Handy, he emphasized coming out there playing hard defensively, competing,” Pippen Jr. said via Lakers Nation. “As long as we take good shoots he’s happy with them so we just knew picking up our defensive intensity was the main focus of this game.”
“I just think my ability to create space on offense, getting defenders off balance where they have to jump where they have to foul me,” Pippen Jr. added. “It’s been something I’ve been naturally good at and I’ve picked up more tricks but hopefully I’m showing that it can translate.”
Golden State seeks its first win of the NBA Summer League season after getting beat 86-68 by the Sacramento Kings, led by Keegan Murray’s 26 points. Gui Santos, the Warriors biggest bright spot form that July 2 loss, led the way with 23 points.
“Santos was good,” Warriors head coach Seth Cooper said via NBC Sports’ Monte Poole, “for a guy who hasn’t even had all the practices that we’ve had.”
“You see him really aggressive,” Cooper added. “Did he have some turnovers? (Yes). Did he have some (bad) plays, especially early? (Yes). But you see with young guys, some the young guys even as they get into the NBA, that have a lot of turnovers are guys that turn out to be really, really good players.”
“We wanted to see him with the ball in his hands, and we saw that. He got to make plays,” Cooper continued. “The more he does that, as Summer League and his career progresses, the better he’s going to be. But he showed a knack for, offensively, having an effect on the game for a guy playing his first game in the United States.”
Santos played professional basketball in Brazil before giving the NBA a shot. His parents both played professional hoops.
“Before the game, I was nervous because it’s a different game here,” Santos said via Poole. “I’m playing outside of my country and my family is not here. But when I started to play, I gained confidence. Catching the ball and making the plays, I started to feel better.”
