The Sacramento Kings are now 2-0 during their Las Vegas Summer League campaign, and a big reason why is because of the play of Kyle Guy.

It is only summer league, but the Sacramento Kings are already showing their winning ways. Last Saturday, the purple and white were able to win their Las Vegas opener against the Chinese National Team by a score of 94-77. And today, the Kings added another win to their record as they beat the Dallas Mavericks by a score of 105-101.

Kings Fight Their Way Back

The game did not begin easy for the Kings as they trailed by as much as 15 points during the game. But once Sacramento got their rythtm, they started to come back and took the lead late in the game which sealed them the victory.

Top players for the Kings today were Semaj Christon who recorded 15 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists, Milton Doyle who scored 22 points, and Kyle Guy who scored 19 points and dished out three assists.

For Guy, this will be the fifth straight summer league game where he made a positive contribution towards his team. Based on his play, he has overachieved as he has shown to be a reliable shooter, solid distributor, and a smart player on the court.

Final Thoughts

Obviously, it is great to see the Kings succeed in summer league as a collective whole. But honestly, it is better to see at least one of the Kings’ draft picks this summer show great promise like Guy has.

In this year’s draft, Vlade Divac needed at least one of his three second-round picks to be good, and maybe even be a rotation guy for the Kings this season. He may not be there just yet, but Guy has shown great play so far in summer league and has given Kings fans even more hope for what their team has in store going forward.
