BOBBY Ray Parks scored his first field goal in the NBA Summer League on Wednesday (Thursday Manila time) in the Dallas Mavericks’ tournament play game against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.
Parks’ basket came at the 57.5-second mark of the first quarter when he drove to the basket for a layup, providing the highlight in what proved to be his most memorable performance yet in four Summer League games.
The two-time MVP out of National University finished the first half with two points, a rebound and a steal in eight minutes and 26 second on the floor - already his longest exposure on the floor for the Mavericks.
As a bonus, he also got to share the floor with fellow Fil-Am Jordan Clarkson of the Lakers as well as D'Angelo Russell, the no. 2 pick overall in the last NBA Rookie Draft where Parks was left unpicked by the teams.
Dallas led, 50-38, at the half.
