The opening game is in the books in Las Vegas Summer League. The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Utah Jazz in a very fun game. Wade Baldwin was ejected late in the game after an altercation with, here’s a shocker, Utah’s Grayson Allen. Nonetheless, a good start to the Blazers’ Vegas stint.
- Zach Collins: 28 mins, 5 pts, 7 reb, 2 ast, 3 blks
- Caleb Swanigan: 26 mins, 11 pts, 13 reb, 5 ast, 3-6 FG, 4-5 FT
- Anfernee Simons: 17 mins, 11 pts, 4-6 FG
- Gary Trent, Jr.: 19 mins, 16 pts, 3-7 FG, 9-9 FT
- Jake Layman: 28 mins, 14 pts, 6 reb, 5-12 FG
- Wade Baldwin: 26 mins, 20 pts, 3 reb, 5 ast, 9-13 FG, ejected.
