Wiseman, Kuminga show flashes in Warriors' summer league loss


The Warriors played their second-to-last NBA Summer League game with both James Wiseman and Jonathan Kuminga on the court together against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. 

Losing 90-82, Golden State was reminded of what the immediate future could look like with both rising stars expected to play significant minutes for the Warriors throughout the 2022-23 season. 

Wiseman finished with a summer league high of 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes of action. He posted a plus-2 in plus-minus and drained his only 3-point attempt of the game. 

Kuminga scored 16 points on 5-of-15 shooting from the field and 2-of-7 from 3-point range while collecting four rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes on the floor. He posted a minus-3 in plus-minus. Midway through the third quarter, Kuminga threw down one of his signature monster dunks, which highlighted his afternoon on the court. 

Neither player lit up the stat sheet, but each showed flashes of what they do best and what they could bring to the floor as role players off the bench or in the starting lineup for the Warriors this season.

Golden State is 1-3 in the Las Vegas portion of the summer league and will look to finish strong on Sunday before heading home for the remainder of the summer. 

With one game remaining, the Warriors should be pleased with what they saw from Wiseman, Kuminga and Moses Moody as the summer league comes to a close this weekend.
