Jordan Taylor has been on the winning side of a lot of basketball games over the past four years, and that only continued in Las Vegas Friday when he made his debut with the Atlanta Hawks’ summer league squad against the Washington Wizards. Taylor’s Hawks team beat the Wizards 102-82, and Taylor made a significant contribution. The former Wisconsin star came off the bench to play 17 minutes, scoring 7 points on 3-of-5 shooting with 1 steal and 1 assist. The negatives for Taylor: 3 fouls and 0-of-2 from beyond the arc.
For what it’s worth, Taylor was the Hawks’ top bench contributor in minutes and second in points behind Frank Hassell. He’ll have four more chances to impress coaches in Vegas before the summer league schedule winds up. The next game is against San Antonio Sunday night at 7 CT.
