2015 Summer League: Pelicans vs Bucks Game 1 Recap

New, comments

If New Orleans first Summer League game is any indication, Alvin Gentry's promise of pace is as good as gold and Seth Curry might make for a good backup at guard for next season.

The 2014 Pelicans Summer League squad averaged 82.4 points a game and had a game high of 90 against the Lakers. In their first 40 minutes of action this season, they are well on their way to blitzing that scoring output as they beat Milwaukee 101-89.

For at least one day, Stephen Curry is the older brother. Despite converting on only 2 of his 7 three-point attempts, Seth Curry led the way with 30 points. He also chipped in 4 assists and 2 steals.

Victor Rudd added 17 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists; Larry Drew had a nice all-around game (11 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists); and He Tianju had 9 points in 12 minutes.

As a team, the Pelicans made 55% of their field goals, converted 11 of  their 29 attempts from behind the three-point line and had 10 more assists / 8 more steals than the Bucks. When you watch the highlights below, pay particular attention to the shot clock. I believe New Orleans shot the ball in the first 9 seconds of the clock all but twice.

If you missed the game, you can catch the replay on NBAtv at 11 AM Central. Game 2 will be against the Dallas Mavericks at 3 PM Central.
