The Toronto Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 93-85 in the Vegas Summer League. I am not surprised by this win. The Raptors have plenty of more promising players for the future than the Wizards. Andrea Bargnani got 20 points and shot 7-11 from the field and pulling in 4 boards in 30 minutes. Bargnani was playing great. He hit his foul shots and got 16 in the first half. Joey Graham led the way with 22 points and shot 7-12 from the field in 26 minutes. I don't think Graham should be in the Summer League. He has good talent and will do fine without this. Andre Barret had 13 points and 5 assists in 23 minutes. Barret had a solid game. I think he will continue to develop under the wing of T.J. Ford. Kris Humphries got 12 points and 7 boards in 26 and a half minutes. Humphries played well. I like his rebounding and think his offense will come to him later in his NBA tenure. Oleksiy Pecherov for the Wizards got 15 points and 7 boards in 28 minutes. Great game from Pecherov. Will numbers like that he looks like a good pick. Cornelius McFadgon got 17 points and 1 assist in 19 minutes. Nice game of scoring for McFadgon. He has to learn and develop an all around game to make it in the NBA though. Andray Blatche got 15 points and 7 boards in 34 minutes. Nice game for Blatche. He got rebounds and every team likes a forward who pull in boards. Donell Taylor got 12 points and 2 assists in 30 minutes. Taylor played well. But just like Cornelius has to have a complete game.
