Youth Christian McCaffrey Jersey

Deandre Ayton is having no problem with the competition or
the schedule at the NBA level.

Ayton outplayed a fellow top rookie big man for the second time Youth
Christian McCaffrey Jersey
, keeping the Phoenix Suns undefeated in
preliminary play in Las Vegas.

Another full day of basketball Monday, highlighted by Ayton against Orlando’s
Mo Bamba in a matchup of unbeaten teams, was the third game in four days for the
20 teams in action at the NBA Summer League. The games are shorter than a
regular NBA game – 40 minutes instead of 48 – and there’s no travel, but it’s
still a lot of action in a short amount of time.

Some teams even gave players a rest day during the stretch of games, knowing
there will be more ahead. Every team is guaranteed five games, with the
possibility of playing as many as eight games in 12 days.

Ayton didn’t look like he needed a break after scoring 17 points and grabbing
13 rebounds in the Suns’ 71-53 victory over the Magic. The No. 1 pick said it
was his first victory over Bamba, the No. 6 pick, after he beat fellow high
school teammate and No. 2 selection Marvin Bagley III on Saturday.

”With all the excitement and all the fans coming out here, it just really
made me a lot more comfortable,” Ayton said in an interview on NBA TV. ”And I
just want to put on a show for them to be honest and just win as many games as I
play.”

There won’t be any more for Bagley, as the Sacramento Kings announced that an
MRI revealed a pelvic bone bruise. The Kings said Bagley would rest for a week
or two.

Monday was the last of the 10-game slates on the campus of UNLV. There are
only five games Tuesday before teams are seeded for tournament play that begins
Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Angels open a 10-game road trip Monday afternoon with a
makeup game against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

The game was originally rained out on April 15.

The Angels will continue east afterward and begin a three-game series against
the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.

The Royals (25-54) have lost 11 of 12 and 17 of 19.

The Angels (41-37) have lost two straight and trail the Seattle Mariners by
six games for the second wild card from the American League.

Los Angeles left-hander Tyler Skaggs is scheduled to start on the mound after
he was scratched Thursday against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays because of a
sore hamstring.

Skaggs (6-4, 2.81 ERA) should have good memories of Kansas City. He threw
seven shutout innings in each of his two career appearances against the Royals,
both on their home field.

He allowed four hits and matched his career high with nine strikeouts on
April 16, 2017, but was matched by Royals starter Ian Kennedy and Kansas City
eventually scored a run in the bottom of the ninth to win 1-0.

Skaggs made his first career start in Kansas City in July 2016, which also
marked his first major-league game back from Tommy John surgery performed nearly
two years earlier. He allowed three hits in the 13-0 win.

The Angels are 6-0 against the Royals this season, but Skaggs has not
appeared in any of those games. He last pitched July 15 at the Oakland A’s and
did not allow an earned run in seven innings of an 8-4 win.

Skaggs is 3-0 in June with a 0.45 ERA, perhaps his best stretch since
undergoing elbow surgery in August 2014.

“With Tyler, we’ve seen a constant growth in confidence,” Angels manager Mike
Scioscia told the Los Angeles Times. “This guy’s worked so hard to get back to
where he was and even a little above that now.”

Kansas City starter Jakob Junis (5-8, 4.43) has been trending in the opposite
direction Scott
Laughton Jersey
, losing his past five starts.

He began the season by blanking the Detroit Tigers for seven innings in a 1-0
win on April 3 and doing the same six days later in a 1-0 win over the Seattle
Mariners.

Junis then faced the Angels and was knocked out after allowing four runs and
seven hits in 4 2/3 innings of a 5-3 loss in Kansas City, giving up home runs to
Luis Valbuena, Justin Upton and Mike Trout.

Junis had allowed 19 home runs entering Sunday, tied for the major-league
lead with Bartolo Colon.

“It’s definitely been a struggle for me,” he told reporters after his latest
start. “I’ve given up a lot of home runs this year, so I’m very conscious of
that. I’m trying to keep it in the ballpark, because when I do, that’s when I
have success.”

Junis struggled even worse in his only other appearance against the Angels
last June, giving up five runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings of a 9-0 loss in
Anaheim.
