Brick City – Sixers vs Jazz (Summer League)

The 0-1 Philadelphia 76ers faced the 0-1 Utah Jazz tonight in the Salt Lake City Summer League. Both teams shot terribly tonight with 168 total points scored in the game. Charlie Brown Jr continues to look like a pro caliber player dropping 12 points on 4 of 7 shooting. NBA G-League Final MVP Trevelin Queen looked great in his Sixers debut with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. He was a +19 on the floor as well.

Charles Bassey tied former Delaware Bluecoat, Justin Robinson for the game high in points with 17. He also added 9 rebounds and 4 steals but had 5 personal fouls.

Even with-it being Brick City, the Sixers made a late run to take an 86-82 win. They now move to 1-1 in Summer League action.

Freddys Five (Takeaways)

  1. Charlie Brown Jr. impresses again. 2 games into Summer Leage but could he make the Sixers roster?
  2. Charles Bassey looks solid on Offense, but strength on defense continues to be a question mark for me.
  3. Trevelin Queen seemed passive at times but saw the floor well. He closed it out with a steal to end the game.
  4. Loved Myles Powell in College. Love him still now. Undersized so probably stays stuck in G-League/Big League Limbo.
  5. Way too many fouls for these guys if they think they are going to make an NBA roster.
