After dropping their first summer league game to the Boston Celtics, the Sixers are back in action early Tuesday evening as they take on the San Antonio Spurs. Top pick Ben Simmons will not play in Tuesday's game. He suffered leg cramps midway through the fourth quarter, but not before putting up a solid 10 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. I assume Christian Wood will replace him. He led all scorers with 20 points on 5-7 shooting.
For the Spurs, local products Ryan Arcidacono, Quenton Decosey and Will Cummings will see quality minutes. Arcidacono got the start in the 90-69 win over the Utah Jazz, while Decosey and Cummings came off the bench. Kyle Anderson led the team with 25 points on 10-16 shooting.
