The Los Angeles Lakers had a pretty good run in the Las Vegas Summer League, though it all came to an end on Saturday night when they lost 83-77 in the quarter-finals to the Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers were in charge for the majority of the game, holding a 10-point lead at the half and mid-way through the third quarter, yet the Warriors – and Kent Bazemore – refused to go away.

L.A. did have a number of impressive individual performances though, with Lester Hudson leading the way – he had 18 points and 4 steals in 27 minutes. Next up was undrafted rookie, Elias Harris, who scored 17 points and had 2 steals in 30 minutes on the floor.

Marcus Landry scored 14 points on 3-for-5 shooting from downtown, meaning Landry scored at least 14 points in all four games for the Lakers in Vegas. Chris Douglas-Roberts showed off his athleticsm and passing ability, scoring 12 points in 23 minutes. He also dished out 3 assists.

Robert Sacre scored just 6 points on 3-for-5 shooting in 25 minutes, though he did grab 10 rebounds and dished out 2 assists.

Finally, Travis Hyman took advantage of his 14 minutes on the floor by scoring 3 points, grabbing 5 boards, blocking 5 shots and stealing the ball 2 times.

Overall, it was a fun Summer League campaign for the Lakers. They were an energized squad who thrived on playing scrappy defense. A few of the guys on the team definitely deserve camp invites from the Lakers – standby for detailed posts on each player worthy of an invite within the coming week.
