Layman scores 21 in Blazers' championship game loss to Lonzo-less Lakers in Vegas summer league

After struggling with his 3-point shooting for much of the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League, former Maryland forward Jake Layman hit five of eight 3-pointers in Monday night’s championship game in the Portland Trail Blazers’ 110-98 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, who played without Lonzo Ball, the summer’s league Most Valuable Player.

Layman finished with 21 points, shooting 8-for-19 overall, to go along with seven rebounds in 29 minutes. Layman, who played sparingly for the Trail Blazers as a rookie last season after being acquired in a draft-night trade with the Orlando Magic (who picked him at No. 47), averaged 15 points in the summer league.
