2012 NBA Summer League: Jazz Down 76ers, Pacers Hold Off Thunder

Behind a huge game from second-year guard Alec Burks, the Utah Jazz defeated Philadelphia 76ers 84-80.

Burks, the 12th overall pick of the 2011 draft, scored 31 points on 10-of-14 shooting. Burks's aggressive play earned him 11 trips to the free throw line and he knocked down 10. Enes Kanter, the third pick of the '11 draft, scored 10 points on five-of-nine shooting and pulled down eight rebounds.

Undrafted rookie Jacob Pullen continued to impress, scoring 23 points on eight-of-14 shooting for the 76ers. Rookie Moe Harkless scored just two points and didn't play in the second half after aggravating a prior hip injury.

The Indiana Pacers, led by Lance Stephenson's 28 points, took down the Oklahoma City Thunder 78-74.

Stephenson, who had just 13 points on 12 shots Monday, only needed 14 shots to score his 28 points Tuesday. He also dished out seven assists. Rookie Mason Plumlee had 14 points, but pulled down only three rebounds.

Lazar Hayward had a team-high 15 points to go with eight rebounds for the Thunder while rookie Perry Jones III scored eight points in 23 minutes.

The Orlando Magic and Detroit Pistons are set to tip off at 3:00 pm EST and the contest between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics will close out the day.
