NBA Summer League update: Antetokounmpo shows shot-blocking ability

Former Dayton forward blocks three shots Monday for Mavericks


Kostas Antetokounmpo received his most significant playing time of the NBA Summer League on Monday and showed glimpses of the potential Dayton Flyers fans saw at times throughout the 2017-18 season.

In 14 minutes, Antetokounmpo blocked three shots for the Dallas Mavericks in a 91-71 victory over the Golden State Warriors in Las Vegas, Nev. He also had seven rebounds and two steals. He made 1 of 4 field goals and 2 of 8 free throws, scoring four points.

Antetokounmpo, the 60th and last pick of the NBA Draft in June, didn’t play in the Mavericks’ previous game Saturday. In his first game Friday, Antetokounmpo played the final two minutes and made his only field-goal attempt and finished with two points.
