NBA: Low sees more playing time in Dallas defeat
Honolulu's Derrick Low had three points, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers today in the Dallas Mavericks' 95-86 loss to the Golden State Warriors in an NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas.
Low, a 2004 'Iolani School alum, played 7 minutes, 11 seconds — more than twice the amount of time he saw in the Mavericks' opener on Friday when he scored two points in 3:22 against the Clippers.
Yesterday, Low took two shots — both from 3-point range — and hit one.
Low, a rookie point guard, entered the game with 3:35 left in the third quarter and started the fourth quarter before being replaced with 6:24 to play. His 3-pointer with 7:52 left cut Dallas' deficit to 72-68, but the Warriors slowly pulled away for their second straight victory.
Another player with Hawai'i ties, former Rainbow Warrior Matt Lojeski, is also playing in the summer league.
Lojeski, a guard on the Milwaukee Bucks' roster, scored seven points Saturday in an 88-79 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
