Blazers bring home summer league title

Los Angeles Lakers guard Josh Hart has been named the Las Vegas Summer League MVP, marking the second straight summer that a Lakers guard has earned the honor.

Portland led the game from start to finish to record the largest Las Vegas Summer League championship game victory in history.

The 6-foot-8 Mykhailiuk - he scored 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting (2 of 7 from three) with three rebounds and two assists in the title game - averaged 16.6 points per game on 48.3 percent shooting for the 6-1 Lakers.

LeBron James will want to file away Josh Hart's name.

"Our identity is totally different, the make-up is totally different, that team a year ago we had three first-rounders and a second rounder, so the make-up was totally different and how we played was totally different", Hart said.

Hart's performance during the Summer League was so stellar that Team President and Lakers legend Magic Johnson said that Hart might enter conversations to be in the starting line-up of the Lakers once the regular season starts.

Eric Pincus and Josh Martin consider Hart's role within L.A.'s core in the latest episode of "Hollywood Hoops". His Blazers did not trail once in the game. In Summer League he led all players in scoring with 24 points, shooting 47% from the field, and averaged 5 rebounds. "That's never been a reason why I played this game". "My ability to shoot off the dribble". He is expected to get more playing time next season ahead of new recruits Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson.

Heading into the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Hart was one of the most compelling players to watch.

Now that the Cavs' Summer League run has come to an end, fans everywhere will be forced wait patiently for the next time they will be able to see Sexton take the court in the Wine and Gold.
