Josh Hart and Collin Sexton had what looks like a decent duel in the semifinals of the NBA Summer League tournament last night. Hart went off for 37 points and nine rebounds in the Lakers’ 2OT win (nothing is more conceptually absurd than Summer League overtime), while Sexton had 27 points for the Cavs. The Lakers may have won, but Sexton had the highlight of the night, which, in fitting Summer League fashion, had nothing to do with the actual basketball being played on the court.
Sure, Hart may have had a wide-open pull-up three, but he was clearly intimidated by the sumo defense.
You may recall that Sexton is a staredown genius of sorts.
