Both Bagley and Giles were excellent in their debuts on Monday night, both reaching double figures, but on Tuesday Bagley was only able to manage seven points and seven rebounds, shooting three of sixteen and missing all five of his three-point attempts.
After coming off a season-long absence due to rehabbing his knee, Giles was able to score four points in the back end of back to back games, while grabbing three rebounds and grabbing four steals.
Giles made two of his nine shots and he missed both of his attempts from beyond the arc.
Jordan Bell of the Warriors really seemed to frustrate the former Blue Devils with his physicality and length on defense inside the paint.
As both player now have a bad game under their belts, they both have to learn how they can impact a game when their shots aren’t falling whether it be on the defensive end or being active on offense.
Bagley and Giles will have a day to rest and recover before their next game as they both look to improve on a rather rare bad game from the duo.
The Sacramento Kings Summer League team will play its final game of the California Classic on Thursday afternoon at 5:00 pm ET against the Miami Heat Summer League team before both teams head down to Nevada for the highly regarded Las Vegas Summer League.
The game between the Kings and the Heat can be seen on NBATV as well as ESPN3.
