On the bright side, however, Pittsnogle displayed some other aspects of his game. He snared four rebounds, dealt out two assists, and had just two fouls during his time on the floor. He also recorded a steal and blocked a shot. The minimal fouls represented a big step forward for the WVU alumnus, who has struggled defensively in several games during NBA summer league play.
Pittsnogle's next chance to impress the Mavs comes on Tuesday evening when Dallas faces host squad Utah. Dallas coach Avery Johnson took in Monday's game.
