The Las Vegas Summer League’s leading scorer, Bryn Forbes, continued his summer onslaught with 29 points and five assists in the Spurs’ Round 2 86-81 victory over the Pelicans on Thursday.
All of Thursday’s winners advanced to the quarterfinal round while the losers were eliminated from tournament play that began Wednesday.
The Spurs guard has been a terror for opposing teams as San Antonio improved to 3-1 in Vegas. Forbes began the day averaging a Summer League-high 29.3 points in the first three games after going undrafted in 2016. The former Michigan State Spartan knocked down a crossover, pull-up 3-pointer from the top of the arc to give the Spurs an 81-78 lead with 1:02 remaining in the game. San Antonio never trailed again.
Derrick White, the former Division II player who went No. 29 in the 2017 draft, finished with 15 points.
Pelicans (1-4) guard Quinn Cook cooled off with a team-high 16 points and seven assists after averaging 21.8 points in his first four games.
