Two positives in the game for Anderson, was that he only had one turnover and went 9-12 from the free-throw line. Through five Las Vegas Summer League games, Anderson is averaging 17.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2 steals.

Jonathon Simmons finished with 12 points on 4-9 from the field in 25 minutes. The only problem is that Simmons didn’t produce in other categories, like he has the past few games. Simmons only finished with 2 assists and zero rebounds.
