Lonzo Ball has the opportunity to cap off a strong Las Vegas Summer League on Monday night at 10 p.m. ET when the Los Angeles Lakers meet the Portland Trail Blazers in the championship game.
The Blazers were the first team to secure a berth in the final after they defeated the Memphis Grizzlies, 87-82, and the Lakers followed suit with a 108-98 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
The Blazers advanced to the championship with an 87-82 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in the semifinals on Sunday. Since going 1-2 in the preliminary round of summer league, the Blazers have won four in a row, beating the Chicago Bulls, top-seeded Toronto Raptors and Spurs, in addition to the Grizzlies.
Portland has reached the title game even though two of the four players also on their NBA roster — Zach Collins (right quad contusion) and third-year guard Pat Connaughton (left hamstring strain) — have missed the tournament round with injuries.
Stokes is averaging 12.5 points and 8.0 rebounds, while Hunter is scoring 11.1 points and shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc. Monday’s championship game will be one last chance in Vegas for Stokes and Hunter to make an impression on an NBA front office, giving them added motivation. Hunter especially can blow hot or cold in any given game, so he has the potential to be a major difference-maker for the Blazers.
