In another high scoring affair, the Summer Spurs prevailed 99-85 over the Summer Trail Blazers. The #SummerofBryn continued as Forbes led the way with 35 points on 26 shots (11-26 from the field, 6-11 from three and 7-7 from the line).
Olivier Hanlan started in the place of a Murray and made the most of his 26 minutes playing a solid two-way game. Hanlan’s 16 points (on 7-9 shooting) and +16 were second best on the team (behind Forbes in both categories) and his stat line was fully flushed out with 2 boards, 2 assists and 3 steals. Check out Collin Reid’s game recap on Project Spurs for more insight.
