Bruins in NBA Summer League

Bumped. Cool update. GO BRUINS. -N

While trying to find out more about AA's trade, I found this entry at ESPN with David Thorpe tweeting live from the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.  He mentions our Bruins several times:

  • Collison vs. Hill is a good matchup. George can defend.
  • Collison does a nice job attacking the ballscreen. Pressures the show guy.
  • Westbrook is the most explosive game changer.
  • Collison can run a team. As Ben Howland knows.
  • Collison is really nice. I see why Holiday played the 2.
  • Kevin Love in the house. Looks like he's ready to out-tweet all the assembled writers when the Wolves play in a few minutes
  • Interesting twist of philosophies. Westbrook is playing in his 2nd summer league this month. D Rose will not be in any. Mayo either.
  • The only guy who knows how to play for this Bucks team is Luc.

Also, Kevin Arnovitz posted some additional notes on Darren:

One of my favorite matchups of the day was Darren Collison-George Hill. As David Thorpe pointed out in his twitter thread, Hill is a brutal guy for Collison to have to deal with on the first day of class. Hill was able to shoot over Collison, shake him off the dribble, and beat him in transition with his combination of handle and speed. But Collison put together a few nice sequences of his own, including one in the third quarter on a screen-and-roll with Earl Barron: Collison was able to penetrate off the screen, then lob a pretty floating pass to Barron, who slammed it home. In general, Collison marshaled the floor with confidence. The most notable feature of his halfcourt game as a point guard: Patience (hello, UCLA). He attacked only when he had an invitation, rarely forced a pass, and executed high-percentage feeds to the right guys on numerous occasions.

I'm really happy to see how well DC is doing in his debut.  It doesn't surprise me one bit based on the way he carried himself throughout his career here in Westwood.  Can't wait to see him mature as a player while learning from CP3. Go Bruins!
