By now, everyone is familiar with the story of the 2016 Summer League champion Dallas Mavericks and their disastrous rookie season.
The Mavericks lost a pair of first-round games in overtime to the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers, respectively, in the opening round of the playoffs.
This summer, the Mavericks will try to repeat the feat against a depleted, rebuilding Utah Jazz squad, which could easily win its first championship.
But before we get to the stats, let’s take a look at who has the best shot at winning the 2017 Las Vegas Summer League title.
Brooklyn Nets (20-20) | Last Week: #5, #10 This week, Brooklyn beat Miami in a blowout to advance to the NBA Finals.
The Nets lost their first two games of the series, and they’re still trying to find their identity on the defensive end.
Brooklyn will be without guard Jordan Hill and shooting guard J.J. Hickson (concussion).
They’ll also be without the services of center DeMarre Carroll, guard Jarnell Stokes and forward Markel Brown.
Detroit Pistons (22-19) | This Week: Bye 3.
Sacramento Kings (21-19-1) | this week: Bye 4.
Memphis Grizzlies (20.5-21) | Bye This week’s opponent is Memphis, who’s still looking for its first win of the season against the Utah Jazz.
