The Jazz wrapped up first-round action at the Las Vegas Summer League on Thursday night with an 87-78 loss to the Houston Rockets at the Thomas & Mack Center.
Third-year center Tony Bradley had another strong performance, registering game-highs with 23 points and 13 rebounds — eight of which were offensive. He hit 9 of 15 shots and made 5 of 6 free throws.
Veteran big man Willie Reed was the only other Jazz player to score in double figures, totaling 13 points on 5 of 6 shooting. Rookie Miye Oni had eight points, but shot just 3 for 9. Utah hit a respectable 44.9% of its shots overall, but made only 8 of 27 (29.6%) from 3-point range.
The Jazz were without the services of second-round picks Jarrell Brantley (right hamstring tightness) and Justin Wright-Foreman (personal reasons). Tre’Shaun Fletcher (left hip soreness) was also out.
Chris Clemons led the Rockets by totaling 19 points, five rebounds and five assists.
Having gone 2-2 in the opening round, the Jazz will now wrap up their Vegas trip with a consolation game on Saturday at 2 p.m. MDT against the Charlotte Hornets.
