It was a sensational Las Vegas Summer League and professional debut for the undrafted rookie out of Duke, but Trevon Duval was unable to follow that performance up in his second pro outing.
Trevon Duval scored twenty or more points only twice in his Duke career and he reached the twenty point plateau in his first game with the Houston Rockets Summer League team, but he was unable to follow that performance in his encore performance.
After dropping twenty points in twenty-three minutes on Friday afternoon, Duval was only able to muster up one point in seventeen minutes of game action on Sunday evening as the Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors Summer League team 87-81.

Duval’s lone point came at the free throw line where he missed his only other attempt. The former Duke guard missed all eight of his field goal attempts, three of them coming from beyond the arc.
Despite not scoring, Duval was able to manage to pull down three rebounds and dish out two assists in the victory.
After only committing three turnovers on Friday, Duval coughed the ball up five times on Sunday, a major area of concern for him while in Durham.
Duval showed at Duke that he’s not the most prolific shooter and he’s at his best when he’s attacking the basket and creating for his teammates off the dribble.
Trevon Duval will be able to right the ship and get back out on the court on Monday night as the Houston Rockets take on the Los Angeles Clippers Summer League team. The matchup between Western Conference rivals will be at 11:30 pm ET and be aired on NBATV.
The Rockets will look for Duval to shake off the first poor performance of his professional career and bring a scoring and leadership presence off the bench.
