The Lakers played their second preseason game against the Suns in Las Vegas with Phoenix winning it 119-115. Austin Reaves played game-high 28 minutes for the purple and gold.
During his time on the floor the 24-year-old shooting guard scored 6 points, dished out 9 assists, grabbed 7 rebounds, stole 3 balls and blocked 2 shots. LeBron James praised his teammate for playing extremely hard and having high basketball IQ.
“Austin can fit in any group,” James said postgame, via Mike Trudell. “A guy who plays extremely hard, plays well, doesn’t make mistakes, always in the right place at the right time … he plays extremely hard. His IQ is very high. Always good to be on the floor with him. I love AR.”
