74. 89. . 89. 29

The San Antonio Spurs improved to 1-1 in the Las Vegas Summer League after beating the Milwaukee Bucks. The Spurs had a few bright spots in the game, but there were some things the Spurs must correct.

Kyle Anderson Is Getting Going

Kyle Anderson had a terrific game, despite only playing 22 minutes. Anderson finished with 22 points and five rebounds. Two impressive numbers: Anderson was 10-of-11 from the charity stripe and 2-of-2 from three-point range. Anderson was coming off a 23-point performance against New York on Saturday. Anderson is playing the way, the Spurs envisioned he would.

Jarrell Eddie Can Shoot

After going undrafted last year, Jarrell Eddie spent the year with the Austin Spurs. On Saturday—Eddie’s first game on Saturday with the Spurs Summer League squad—he was shaky. Eddie went 3-of-10 from the field in 21 minutes. On Sunda,y things changed. Eddie shot 5-of-8 from three-point range in 23 minutes. Eddie has good size for a wing (6’7″, 220 pounds), and he can play either wing spot.

Jonathan Simmons Looks Sharp

Newly signed guard Jonathan Simmons had a good game against the Bucks. Simmons finished with 13 points, six assists and three steals in 24 minutes. Simmons had a poster dunk on Michael Eric that should be all over ESPN.

Too Many Turnovers

The Spurs had 19 turnovers on Sunday. Big man Brandon Davies led the team with 5 turnovers, and Simmons committed four more. San Antonio needs to clean that up.
