The show goes on in Las Vegas.
Despite the aftershocks of an earthquake cancelling several games, the NBA Las Vegas Summer League continued on Saturday for three local athletes.
Former BYU standout Eric Mika totaled nine points on 4 of 6 from the field and gathered in seven rebounds as the Sacramento Kings topped a China pro team 94-77. Mika added three steals, an assist and a crowd-pleasing alley-oop dunk in the game.
Former Cougar Elijah Bryant contributed four points, three rebounds, two assist and a steal as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Atlanta Hawks 89-83. Bryant played 19 minutes and started his second straight games for the Bucks.
Former Lone Peak and Duke star Frank Jackson, who scored 30 points on Friday, sat out the New Orleans Pelicans’ 84-79 loss to the Washington Wizards, the official reason listed as “DNP-injury or illness.”
Mika, Bryant and Jackson are expected to be back in action on Monday. Mika and the Kings take on the Mavericks at 1:30 p.m. MT (NBA TV), Bryant and the Bucks will play the Raptors at 5 p.m. MT (ESPNU) and Jackson and the Pelicans face the Bulls at 7:30 p.m. MT (NBA TV).
