The San Antonio Spurs lost their Utah Summer League finale, but still got impressive performances from multiple players.

On Thursday night, the San Antonio Spurs completed their run in the 2017 Utah Summer League. They faced the Philadelphia 76ers and looked to head into the Vegas Summer League on a high note.

For those looking to see Markelle Fultz or how well he played, he never stepped onto the court. The same went for Timothy Luwawu-Cabarrot. Other players still took the court, though, including Furkan Korkmaz.

What happened in this game against the Sixers? Let’s get into the results.

29. . 94. 93. 86

Game Star

For the second straight game, Bryn Forbes played the role of the team’s star. He put up 21 points, following up Wednesday’s 31-point performance against the Boston Celtics. This came on 7 or 17 shooting in 29 minutes.

Forbes is having a fantastic start to the Summer League. With more games to come in Vegas, he should get the opportunity to build his total and break through.

No Murray

Dejounte Murray didn’t suit up for Thursday night’s game, which was filed as a “DNP-Coach’s Decision.” Jeff Ledbetter and Cleanthony Early took the open minutes, combining for 6 points.

The Draft Picks

Derrick White had a quiet night. He scored just 3 points on 1 for 4 shooting from the field. This included 5 rebounds and a game-high 6 turnovers.

Jaron Blossomgame had a safe night for the San Antonio Spurs. After rebounding from a blank performance on Wednesday night, he came back with 5 points and 7 rebounds in 17 minutes. It’s a positive that he’s shown an aggressive rebounding ability, but we’ll see if the point production stays consistent.
