Jerome Randle had eight points, three assists and just one turnover in 27 minutes as a starter today, but his Orlando Magic team lost 78-73 in the Orlando NBA summer league.
Through two games, the former Cal star is averaging 8.0 points, 4.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 turnover. But Randle hasn’t found his shot yet, converting 2-for-8 vs. Utah, including 0-for-2 from 3-point range. He is 5-for-17 from the floor in two games, 0-for-5 from beyond the arc.
Rod Benson, also late of the Bears, had four points, two rebounds, one blocked shot, one assist and one steal in 12 minutes off the bench for Utah.
