McDermott struggles, but Bulls keep winning
The Bulls stayed perfect at the Las Vegas summer league Thursday night by beating the 76ers 79-68.
Rookie Doug McDermott had his first off night of the summer, hitting 3 of 10 shots for 11 points. Tony Snell continued to stand out, though, scoring 18 points.
Thursday's win was something of a breakout game for second-round draft pick Cameron Bairstow, who finished with 18 points and 8 rebounds. Bairstow, a 6-10 power forward from New Mexico, hit 11 of 13 free throws and outplayed Philadelphia's Nerlens Noel (14 points, 5 rebounds), the 2013 lottery pick who sat out last season with a knee injury.
Following a day off, the Bulls will face Sacramento in the summer quarterfinals on Saturday at 7 p.m. on NBA TV.
