Hart managed 12 points (3-12 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 6-9 FT), two assists and two rebounds across 22 minutes during the Lakers' 91-73 loss to the Trail Blazers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Hart often was head and shoulders above the competition in Las Vegas, although Tuesday was one of his more modest performances. The second-year pro still finished summer league play with averages of 22.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 27.0 minutes over seven games while checking in third in scoring overall in the desert. He'll look to carry over his considerable momentum into training camp and preseason as the Lakers embark on a highly anticipated season, and he'll presumably have an opportunity to make a case for a solid backcourt rotation role.
Hart scored 37 points (13-28 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding nine rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double-overtime win over the Cavaliers in the summer league semi-final.
The 23-year-old's been explosive in Vegas, as Hart looks to prove he can be a solid rotation player for a Lakers squad that suddenly has title aspirations after adding LeBron James. If Hart does earn a spot in the NBA rather than the G League coming out of training camp, though, it will likely be for his all-around game and leadership abilities rather than his offense.
Hart generated 18 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals across 21 minutes during the Lakers' 101-78 win over the Pistons in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.
Hart's point total was just below second-round pick Svi Mykhailiuk's haul, and it represented his latest strong summer league effort. The second-year guard was already third in scoring (22.5 points) in Las Vegas coming into Sunday's contest, and he upped his already impressive 47.0 percent success rate from the field with his 50.0 percent tally against the Pistons. Hart will look to continue his stellar play in Monday's semifinal-round contest.
Hart finished with 20 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes during Thursday's 82-69 summer league victory over the Clippers.
We all get it, Hart is pretty good. He proved, once again, that he is a class above the other players on the floor and is simply using the summer league as a launching pad to hopefully a bigger role with the Lakers NBA squad. Some of the offseason signings could hurt Hart's prospects but he has certainly shown the coaching staff that he deserves to be in the rotation.
Hart had 27 points (8-16 FG, 4-12 3PT, 7-10 FT) in Tuesday's summer league win over the Knicks.
Hart dueled with rookie Kevin Knox for much of the night, and while Knox finished with the higher scoring total (29), Hart and the Lakers ultimately got the last laugh, earning the No. 1 seed heading into tournament play. Hart, a second-year guard, has been one of the best overall players in Vegas, and he added six rebounds, three assists and three steals to his tally Tuesday.
