Hogs To Decide NBA Las Vegas Summer League

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The championship game of the Las Vegas NBA Summer League will have a distinct Arkansas feel as a pair of Razorbacks have led their respective teams to Monday’s title game at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.

The 11-day event in Las Vegas featured 67 games from 23 NBA teams and the NBA D-League Select team, but it all comes down to Monday’s championship game between the Bobby Portis-led and unbeaten Chicago Bulls at 6-0 and the Minnesota Timberwolves with former Hog Coty Clarke.

Selected No. 22 overall by the Bulls in the 2015 NBA Draft, Portis emerged as a rookie contributor in Chicago, playing in 62 games and averaging 17.8 minutes, 5.4 rebounds and 7.0 points per game.
