Dylan Ennis went undrafted last month, but the Oregon product was the recipient of “MVP” chants from the crowd in Las Vegas on Friday. Ennis was nearly unstoppable as he scored 35 points during the Golden State Warriors’ 109-100 NBA Summer League victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
“Being undrafted, you take it personal,” Ennis told NBA TV.
Teammates waved towels at the end of the game to cool down Ennis, whose career high at Oregon was 22 points.
Ennis, who played for the Thunder in the Orlando Summer League before joining the Warriors in Las Vegas, poured in 23 points in 12 first-half minutes, including six of his eight 3-pointers. He previously had 21 points over five games in Las Vegas.
“Just don’t think about it,” Ennis said. “It touches your hand, you put it up and the rim looks like the ocean … I’ll probably never hear (the ‘MVP’ chants) again in my career.”
Ennis’ 3-pointer with 1:11 remaining gave the Warriors a 105-97 lead that put the game away. Bryce Alford, undrafted out of UCLA, finished with 16 points.
