Despite not having Nerlens Noel, K.J. McDaniels and Jordan McRae — all out with ankle sprains — the Summer Sixers posted a 85-63 win over the Los Angeles Lakers last night to advance in the elimination round of play at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
After a stalemate first quarter (20-20l), Casper Ware and the 76ers summer reserves opened the 2nd qurter with a 16-0 run that extended out to a 24-4 stretch. That 22 point cushion helped the Sixers (2-2) keep the Lakers at arm’s length for the rest of the game.
The Sixers were led in scoring by Sean Kilpatrick and Elijah Millsap who each posted 19 points.
