Mitrou-Long scores 16 points in Summer League debut

Naz Mitrou-Long scored 16 points and grabbed three rebounds off the bench in his NBA Summer League debut on Saturday. He knocked down a team-high four 3-pointers in the Indiana Pacers’ 85-74 win over the Orlando Magic.

Georges Niang started the game for Indiana, but only played a little more than a minute before suffering a sprained left knee. He didn’t return to the game, but scored two points before his injury.

Bubu Palo didn’t appear in the game for the Pacers due to coach’s decision. Indiana will play the Charlotte Hornets in its second game in Orlando on Sunday at 4 p.m.
