Good Experience For Young Reid
Reid was delighted with his performance, especially his head-to-head battle with Nets’ third-year center Jarrett Allen.
“It’s a great experience going against a guy like that,” Reid said after the game.
“He’s athletic and he can do things at the NBA level that a lot can’t do. But it was really fun to get a chance to go at him.”
Jordan McLaughlin finished with 12 points, six assists and five rebounds in the win.
“I think this team has tried to set the tone of a new organization,” Timberwolves Summer League head coach Pablo Prigioni said after the game.
“The way we want to play, how hard we want to compete. Unselfish basketball we are playing offensively. A lot of things that we are trying to implement. It’s total credit to the players.”
Memphis, meanwhile, held off the New Orleans Pelicans, 88-86 in its game.
Brandon Clarke led the Grizzlies with 23 points and 14 rebounds, while Tyler Harvey scored 13 points Bruno Caboclo had 12 and eight boards.
