It was sweet payback; past year, the Lakers won the Summer League title by beating Portland, 110-98.
Not only have the Trail Blazers and Lakers met on the regular season and playoff hardwood for the last (almost) 50 years, they're becoming the two dominant teams in the NBA Summer League. While Hart scored a game-high 37 Points on 13-for-28 from the field, Svi Mykhailiuk also poured in 31 points while knocking down six 3-pointers.
One such fan? None other than the new King of LA himself, LeBron James.

Fire turns Yosemite National Park smoky, hurts businesses
The fire is one of dozens burning across the West as the region struggles with high temperatures that increased fire danger. Investigators are working to determine further circumstances surrounding Varney's death.
The Bulls, who were eliminated from Summer League tournament by the Pistons, finished 3-2 in Las Vegas. This year, their team is led by another member of the 2017 draft class in Josh Hart. Archie Goodwin added 22 points for the Trail Blazers. Most Valuable Player Josh Hart had a Least Valuable Player type of game. The second-year guard leads the Summer League in scoring (24.2) and ranks second in three-pointers (2.5). Small forward Brandon Ingram came into his own as a strong all-around player who even filled in at point guard when Ball was hurt. After this awful game today, I can't wait to get back to training camp and wash this taste out of my mouth. When specifically asked about this, he said that he had worked really hard on his ball-handling abilities and shooting off the dribble.
Hart's teammate and Lakers second-round pick Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk earned second-team honors along with No. 1 overall draft pick Deandre Ayton of Phoenix, Portland's Wade Baldwin IV, Memphis' Jaren Jackson Jr. and Atlanta's Trae Young. His improvement on defense was also mentioned, and his performance will likely give him a shot for more playing time in the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season.
