Lonnie Walker IV scored a game-high 32 points and the San Antonio Spurs led wire-to-wire for their second straight win in the Las Vegas Summer League by a final score of 93-90 over the Toronto Raptors.
Walker IV got going early with 13 points in the first quarter and had 23 points at halftime to help the Spurs take a 58-39 lead at the break. San Antonio built its largest lead of the game by going up 26 in the third quarter, going into the fourth quarter with an 83-59 advantage. Toronto came all the way back in the fourth quarter by winning the final frame 31-10, but back-to-back stops in the final possession helped the Spurs hold off the Raptors 93-90.
Adding 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks to his 32 points, Walker IV registered the highest scoring Summer League game of his career, becoming the first Spurs player to reach 30-plus points since San Antonio guard Bryn Forbes in 2017. Silver and Black forward Drew Eubanks added 19 points (7-10 FG) and 7 rebounds, while Thomas Robinson came off the bench to tally 14 points (6-7 FG) and 7 rebounds. The Raptors were led by 27 points and 7 assists from Jordan Loyd, as well as 24 points and 12 rebounds from 2019 G League MVP Chris Boucher.
It appears Lonnie Walker may have outgrown Summer League. The second-year Spur has put up 77 points in his last 9 quarters of Summer League including 32 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks tonight against the Raptors.pic.twitter.com/jCEVFBwcUX
