Post subject: 13-7 victory in 2015 that turned out to be the final game at Post Posted: Fri Sep 29, 2017 1:20 pm
A look at some of the highlights from Mondays schedule in the Las Vegas Summer League:---DUNN HURTINGMinnesota guard Kris Dunn, the No. 5 pick in last months draft, was held out of the Timberwolves game against Cleveland with a concussion. Dunn has been entered into the NBAs concussion protocol, and his status for the rest of summer league is unclear. The Timberwolves were down 10 at the half, then got outscored 29-9 in the third quarter and wound up falling 99-68 to the Cavaliers.MCGRUDER OVER MURRAYRodney McGruder had 23 points, Briante Weber added seven assists and six steals and Miami topped previously unbeaten Denver 92-81. No. 7 overall pick Jamal Murray scored 29 points in his best game of the summer for the Nuggets. Murray shot 7 for 23 in his first two games in Las Vegas, then made 10 of 24 on Monday.IMPERFECT TENNo. 10 pick Thon Maker had a double-double of sorts -- 10 points, 10 fouls -- in Milwaukees 85-81 loss to Memphis. Players dont foul out of summer league games until their 10th foul.MCCULLOUGH IMPRESSESBrooklyns Chris McCullough is off to a strong start in Las Vegas. His 16-point, eight-rebound effort helped the Nets beat Atlanta 72-65.DECIDING RUNJaron Johnson sparked what became a 16-0 run in the third quarter and finished with 17 points in 21 minutes, helping the D-League All-Stars pull away and beat Houston 89-71.POWELL-POWEREDNorman Powell scored 23 points and Toronto moved to 3-0 in Las Vegas, topping Dallas 80-69. Giovan Oniangue made four 3-pointers for the Mavericks, three of those coming in a 90-second span in the second half. Cheap NBA Jerseys . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. Cheap New York Knicks Jerseys . James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. http://www.cheapknicksjerseys.com/ . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. Cheap Knicks Jerseys . The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. Wholesale Knicks Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech was a bit listless after its upset of Virginia Tech.Fortunately for the Yellow Jackets, they came up with enough big plays to beat Virginia.Marcus Marshall ran 67 yards for a touchdown, Justin Thomas threw a 54-yard scoring pass to Clinton Lynch and Qua Searcy broke loose for a 60-yard TD, leading Georgia Tech to a 31-17 victory over the Cavaliers on Saturday.As if that wasnt enough, Lance Austin sealed the win with a dazzling 24-yard interception return for a touchdown, showing off several nifty moves.It took us a while get going, Marshall said.Georgia Tech (7-4, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) struggled through most of the first half and went to the locker room trailing 10-7. Marshalls career-long run in front of the Cavaliers bench accounted for more than half of the Yellow Jackets 111 yards at the break.But Virginia (2-9, 1-6) couldnt hold on with Matt Johns starting at quarterback for the first time this season. He was 27 of 44 for 220 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown to Ryan Santoro that cut the gap to 24-17 with 7:18 remaining. But Johns also had three interceptions in the second half, including the pick by Austin that finished off Virginia.He played well for a long, long time, Mendenhall said of Johns, who reclaimed the starting job he held last season. He did the best he could.Marshall finished with 127 yards on 16 carries. Thomas, who didnt play the previous week in an upset of Virginia Tech because of an injury, completed 5 of 10 passes for 122 yards in his final game at Bobby Dodd Stadium.I have a lot of great memories in this stadium, the senior quarterback said. We did a lot of great things in our careers. It was a great moment.TAKEAWAYSVirginia: A year to forget -- boy, that must sound familiar to Wahoo fans -- is mercifully winding down. The Cavaliers were doomed by another second-half meltdown, which has become a familiar theme. They have been outscored 183-114 over the final two quarters this season.Georgia Tech: The trriple-option offense had all sorts of blocking breakdowns, most notably when coach Paul Johnson decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 at his own 29.ddddddddddddBackup quarterback Matthew Jordan was stuffed for no gain on a play, and Johnson griped that his team missed all three of its key blocks. But the Yellow Jackets avoided the sort of upset that wouldve really turned up the heat on Johnson, whose job security has been questioned with a new athletic director coming aboard.FIELD GOAL WOESVirginia has another tough day in the kicking game.Sam Hayward missed from 31 and 42 yards, though he did manage to connect from 30 yards. That leaves him 3 of 7 for the season and the Cavaliers at 4 of 9 overall. They havent made a kick longer than 36 yards.TOUGH DAYGeorgia Techs Brad Stewart dropped what like a sure touchdown pass in the third quarter, getting some 10 yards behind the secondary but bobbling away a throw that hit him right in stride.It only got worse for the sophomore receiver. Later in the period, he sustained what appeared to be a potentially serious left knee injury while returning a punt. Stewart had to be helped off the field and didnt return.UP NEXTVirginia: Finishes its first year under coach Bronco Mendenhall next Saturday at Virginia Tech, which has won 12 straight games in the series. The Cavaliers need an upset to avoid tying the school record for most losses in a season.Georgia Tech: Closes the regular season on the road against state rival Georgia. The Bulldogs have won 13 of the last 15 meetings between the teams, including a 13-7 victory in 2015 that turned out to be the final game at Georgia for coach Mark Richt.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
