Former Virginia star Kyle Guy got his first career start for the Sacramento Kings as part of the California Classic in the NBA Summer League. The Kings took down the Golden State Warriors in a close-fought game, 81-77. After a slow start that included a couple turnovers right off the bat, Guy settled in for a solid game.
Guy finished with 10 points, connecting on two threes (in five attempts), going 4-for-7 from the field and adding two rebounds and an assist. He did have four turnovers in his 23 minutes of play, but finished with the third best +/- on the team.
His first three came as part of his 7-point second quarter. Wenyen Gabriel pulled down a tough rebound, and Guy moved well off-ball to shake former Michigan player Jordan Poole for the second-chance points.

Enjoy that same shot in slo-motion while we kick ourselves for not thinking of “Guylight” during his time at Virginia.

With just over 2:30 remaining in the game and the score knotted at 71, Guy curled off a screen and did what he does best: can a big-time three.

The Kings wouldn’t trail again, and Guy’s winning streak jumped to seven since the ACC tournament in March. Guy and Sacramento are back in action tonight (July 2) at 11pm EST as they take on the Miami Heat. You can catch all the action on NBATV.
