    It's so cool that Naz and Niang are playing on the same team. What a treat.

    I saw most of the game - Georges had the most polished game on the court (there were some young bucks on the Knicks that showed a lot of future promise). Naz is quicker than he was at ISU and is a better ball-handler. He's clearly trying to show that he can be a 1 or a 2 but had 5 or 6 TOs (and only played about half the game) and missed some open guys. But he's come a long ways; hopefully, he'll at least get a spot on a G-League team.

    There's a lot of speculation that Utah's release of Jonas "The Swedish Swish" Jerebko was to clear a space for Niang (who would be a cheaper bench player, of course).

    I'm happy to see the progress in both of these guys - lots of work toward their goal.

    Niang uses the reverse layup so well.

    Great way for a guy who doesn't wow you with his vertical to score against shot blockers.

    Dare I say it? Niang's athleticism is under-rated! His spin moves in the lane and body adjustments for reverse layups are nothing but superb athleticism.

    I watched the whole game. Georges was very efficient. Got knocked in the face in the 2nd quarter, and took off after that. I think Utah went on a 9-0 run when that happened, and he was responsible for most of it.

    Naz scores a few points early, but not much after that. A few turnovers, but a couple were not his fault (running big not catching a pass that hit them in the hands). He was a bit out of control at times, but showed great hustle.

    Body control is an underrated aspect of athleticism. Speed and hops get all the press, but body control takes a good player to great and a great player to legendary status.

    Georges and Monte are both getting a lot of love during the summer league. Several announcers have said Monte should be the backup PG for Denver and all of them are saying Georges is an NBA quality player. Lets hope their coaches are thinking the same thing. Great Iowa State representatives.

    Indeed. I don't remember them getting this kind of love from objective reporters during last summer's games. Hope they are correct.

    It annoys me that Monte has not made an NBA.com "Summer League StandOuts" list, and Georges has only made Day 1s. I doubt 7 players have played better than them every day, but I guess I can't say that for certain haha

    PHENOMENAL pass and court vision! Seth Greenberg raved about Niang.

    Here's another one on a backdoor to that punk Grayson Allen:
