Brooklyn Nets Summer League: Summer Nets Come Up Short Against Lonzo Ball, Lakers

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had a passable game where he again made plays with his energy and athleticism to shut down some of the vaunted Lonzo Ball-led Lakers transition possessions and scrape out points from broken offensive possessions. His inability to do much elsewhere consistently persisted against the Lakers but RHJ at his core seems preordained to make positively impactful plays.

Unfortunately, Archie Goodwin could not share in the previous four’s successful nights as an early emphasis on trying to make the Lakers respect his jumpshot went wayward and the usual forays to the rim ended universally with poor finishes.
