The Wizards fell victim to the NBA Summer League's sudden-death overtime Thursday night, as Nets rookie Cam Thomas hit a one-legged circus shot to hand Washington its second loss in Las Vegas.
Thomas finished the game with 31 points on 10-of-23 shooting and continues to look like a steal for Brooklyn as the 27th overall pick in this year's draft.
This was not the prettiest game by any means. Both teams shot under 40% from the field and 25% from three while trading buckets down the stretch to extend the game to two overtimes. In Summer League, if the game goes past the first overtime period, it's next basket wins.
Wizards first-round pick Corey Kispert struggled with his jumper in this one, going 4-for-14 on his field goals for nine total points.
Second-year point guard Cassius Winston has missed the early part of Summer League due to health and safety protocols, so the Wizards have had to rely more on Kispert to create his own offense. That's not exactly Kispert's strength despite his abilities as a knockdown shooter.
The Wizards will return to the floor in Vegas on Saturday to take on the Bucks at 4 p.m.
