It appears that former Liberty County High School basketball standout Jordan McRae was not badly injured last Tuesday, as he was placed back in action in the 76ers’ summer-league game against the Bulls late Thursday night.
Philadelphia’s run at summer-league supremacy ended that night, as the team fell to the top-seeded Chicago Bulls, 79-68, in single-elimination play.
McRae led the Sixers with 25 points, making 7 of 8 shots from the floor and 10 of 10 from the free-throw line.
Nerlens Noel contributed 14 points, five rebounds and a pair of assists in 24 minutes of action, and K.J. McDaniels added 11 points, three rebounds and three blocks.
McRae averaged a team-high 21 points per game through four summer-league games in Las Vegas, according to the stats and reports on the Sixers’ website. He currently ranks third among Samsung NBA Summer League participants in that category behind Glen Rice Jr. (22.5 PPG) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (21.8 PPG).
McRae, a former member of the University of Tennessee basketball team, is also shooting with high efficiency. He’s shooting 50 percent from the field,
37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 86.5 percent from the free-throw line (9.3 FTA/g).
The Sixers faced the NBA D-League Select team in a consolation game Friday.
