VSL Semifinal: Kings vs. Wizards

New, comments
USA TODAY Sports

The Kings have advanced past the 5 standard games everyone in Vegas gets to play and now get the the chance to play at least one more and maybe two if they beat the Wizards tonight.  Sacramento plays Washington at 5 pm and the game will be televised on NBA TV.

The Wizards have been led by Sophomores Otto Porter and Glen Rice, Jr.  Rice is averaging 25.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 steals through 5 games.  Porter is also playing very well, averaging 19.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists himself.  Both Porter and Rice are shooting above 50% overall and above 44% from beyond the arc.

Sacramento has had more balanced contributions so far, with 5 players averaging double digit scoring in Summer League.  One of those, Derrick Williams, will not be playing tonight as he was only meant to play the first three games.  The Kings are led in scoring by Ben McLemore's 14.6 points per game on 52.2% from the field.  Quincy Acy is second at 12.6 points and 7.0 rebounds a game.  Rookie Nik Stauskas is averaging 10.4 points and 2.4 assists while shooting a phenomenal 57.1% from three.

If Sacramento wins tonight, they will face the winner of Charlotte and Houston tomorrow for the Vegas Summer League Championship.
