Yes, it's just five summer league games, against teams primarily comprised of NBA young players and rookies, as well as free agents trying to catch on with teams in the league. Yet it is professional basketball, and Jodie Meeks displayed the same type of play that made him an All American as a junior at Kentucky.
In his five games in the Vegas league Jodie came up big for the Bucks, as he averaged a team leading 19.0 points for Milwaukee's summer league entry.
Meeks was Mr. Consistency for the Bucks as he scored at least 14 points in each game, and hit more than half his shots in each game. Overall Jodie shot 56 percent from the field, 53 percent from behind the NBA three-point arc, and continued his charity stripe excellence by hitting 82 percent of his free-throw attempts. Meeks topped off the five game run by scoring 29-points in the finale.
Meeks not meek in Vegas
