There wasn't much of a carry-over of momentum from the Spurs' first summer league win versus the Kings. The stars of that game, Kyle Anderson and Bryce Cotton, were both off from the field, going 1-7 and 1-6 respectively. Efficent shooting was a rare commodity for the Spurs, as they shot 33.8% from the field. Austin Daye, who struggled in the first game against the Kings, couldn't pick his play back up today, finishing at 3-11 and getting outplayed in every aspect by the Cavaliers' Anthony Bennett. The Spurs did have a couple bright spots offensively, however, as DeShaun Thomas finished with 21 points on 16 shots and kept the Spurs within reach down the stretch. JaMychael Green also had a good day as well, with 12 points on 6-11 shooting, scoring 10 in the first half to keep the Spurs afloat.

For the Cavaliers, the story of today's game was Anthony Bennett and Will Cherry. Bennett had 13 points on 5-8 shooting, and also snatched 14 boards. Bennett looked comfortable within the flow of the offense, moving things along smoothly; making crisp, smart decisions. Cherry, a diminutive guard from the University of Montana, took the game over in the 4th quarter, scoring 14 of his 21 points in the quarter, and dishing out a few dimes down the stretch to seal the victory. Andrew Wiggins didn't shoot well from the field, only going 3-11, but totaled 13 points due to his ability to get to the foul line. He played well defensively, forcing Kyle Anderson into difficult shots, and recovering to make a couple great plays with his quickness. Jack Cooley also had 15 points on 6-9 shooting.

The Spurs' next game will be tomorrow at 5:30 PM versus the New Orleans Pelicans.
