L.A. Lakers’ summer league: Tarik Black in foul play

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Lakers have offered various reasons for this early trend. Lakers assistant coach Mark Madsen, who has served as the team’s summer league head coach, echoed Black’s assertion that he could defend better without leaning into his opponent. Black also faulted himself for relying on his strength over defense in post-up situations. Considering a player has to leave the game after collecting six fouls in a regular-season contest, Black conceded he feels more inclined to play more aggressive in a summer league setting. “In a regular-season game, I would’ve let the play go if I was in a bad position,” Black said. “But we have a ‘no layup’ rule so I gave up a couple of fouls.”Still, Black sounded cognizant his summer league play could dictate his improvement in his second NBA season. After averaging 7.2 points on 58.9-percent shooting and 5.8 rebounds in 21.1 minutes last season through 38 games with the Lakers, Black will stay on the roster for the 2015-16 season on a non-guaranteed contract worth $850,000.“I’m not looking at summer league as just summer league,” Black said. “I’m looking at summer league at how I want to jump start into next season.” Passing gradeD’Angelo Russell might have thrown some nifty passes that remind Lakers coach Byron Scott of Magic Johnson. Jordan Clarkson has wasted no time building off his a promising rookie season, averaging 21 points in two summer league games. But despite an infusion in the Lakers’ backcourt, they have only recorded 14 assists through two games. Russell has recorded half of those, while the Lakers have only shot 33.8 percent from the field. “We have to move the ball around a little bit,” Madsen said. “But ultimately we have to make some shots. But also every cut has to be a scoring cut.” center_img LAS VEGAS >> Nearly every three minutes he has been on the court, Tarik Black has heard something that has soon become a soundtrack surrounding his summer league stint.A referee blows his whistle for yet another foul Black has committed. Thanks to the summer league rule that allows a maximum of 10 fouls per game, Black has caught the referees’ attention at a record-setting pace. He enters the Lakers’ game against the New York Knicks on Monday at Thomas & Mack Center with a league-leading 18 fouls in 44 minutes and 22 seconds through two contests. “I love it for myself,” Black said. “That helps me stay in the game. But I have to get better.”Black fouled out in the Lakers’ loss to Minnesota last Friday after nearly 27 minutes, his 10 fouls slightly eclipsing his points (nine) and trailing his rebounds (13). Black only fared slightly better in the Lakers’ win over Philadelphia on Saturday, his eight fouls overshadowing his nine points and six rebounds in 17:23.last_img read more
