Australian big man Jock Landale continues to impress in his second game of NBA Summer League 2019.
Landale started at centre and played 26 minutes, scoring 13 points (6/12 FG, 1/2 3P) with 8 rebounds. The big man matched up well against his assignment, Omari Spellman. On offence, there was no hesitancy on Landale’s end, be in rolling to the basket or taking his shot when presented with an opportunity.
Check out the video below for a sequence on Landale knocking a ball loose, and getting out in transition for the finish.
Landale’s contributions allowed the Bucks to come from behind in the fourth quarter to take an 89-83 win.
Deng Adel started for the Houston Rockets against the Dallas Mavericks. He had 2 points, 4 rebounds, and a very nice assist to Isaiah Hartenstein for the jam.
Mitch Creek started yesterday against the Cleveland Cavaliers, playing 28 minutes and recording 6 points, 5 rebounds and a steal.
Multiple Aussies have not seen the floor yet. This includes yesterday with Duop Reath (Nets, DNP) and Xavier Cooks (Suns) whose game was postponed following an earthquake, and also today’s William McDowell-White (Rockets, DNP) and Isaac Humphries (Clippers, DNP).
