Former B-MEG Llamados import Denzel Bowles starred in his NBA Summer League debut, posting team-highs of 18 points and 12 rebounds, as his New Orleans Hornets fell to the Portland Trailblazers, 85-82, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
With top overall pick Anthony Davis called up to Team USA, Bowles made the most of his opportunity, coming off the bench to score 18 on an impressive 8-for-12 shooting clip in just 19 minutes of play.
Hornets teammate Austin Rivers, the 10th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, finished with 14 points, two assists and three steals in 32 minutes. Portland was led by 6th pick Damien Lillard, who scored a game-high 25 points for the winning team.
The Hornets face the Milwuakee Bucks in their next game.
