2018 NBA Summer League: Oregon State Alumni Drew Eubanks Drops 8 Points In Spurs Win Over Hawks

On night two of the Utah Jazz NBA Summer League, Eubanks did a solid job again for the Spurs.

No, Tony Parker didn’t play. But Drew Eubanks did.

A seemingly easy victory for the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night over the Atlanta Hawks, encompassed another solid showing for Oregon State alumni Drew Eubanks.

In the contest, the 6’ 10” forward scored 8 points (2-5 FG) and grabbed 2 rebounds in over 17 minutes of action, to help his team to an 103-81 victory.

In the low post, Eubanks looked mostly comfortable, scoring on a few back-to-the basket moves which was reminiscent of his style of play at Oregon State. Yet, he spent most of his court time in pick-and-pop situations beyond the three-point line as the swing spot in the offense. At times, this added to him getting lost in the flow of things offensively.

However, Eubanks was also fairly aggressive in moments, drawing four free throws in the contest, all of which he connected on. On the defensive end of things, Eubanks employed the Spurs’ patented “help-first” approach but didn’t follow up his three block debut with another swat-filled performance. His competition on the boards was also lacking at times, especially on the offensive end.

In the game, San Antonio was led again by Colorado alumni Derrick White, who finished with 21 points after a huge 18 point first-half. White also dished out 9 assists and grabbed 6 rebounds.

For Atlanta, second year pro John Collins paced the Hawks, finishing with a team-high 19 points. First-round draft pick Trae Young added 12 points of his own, on an inefficient 5-16 performance from the field.

The Utah Jazz NBA Summer League takes a day off in observance of July 4th and will resume play on Thursday, July 5th, when San Antonio takes on the Memphis Grizzlies at 4:00 PM PT on NBA TV.
