After an impressive NBA Summer League debut with the Sacramento Kings on Monday night, Kyle Guy picked up right where he left off on Tuesday.

The former Virginia guard hit a 3-pointer early in the first quarter for Sacramento’s first points of the game.

It was the start of another strong outing for Guy, who finished with 13 points in the Kings’ 89-88 loss to the Miami Heat on Day 2 of the California Classic at the Golden1 Center.  

Guy, who scored 10 points against the Golden State Warriors on Monday, finished 5-of-13 from the field and 3-of-8 from 3-point range in 28 minutes of action on Tuesday. The former Cavalier also grabbed four rebounds and dished out three assists.

His talents were on full display midway through the second quarter.

With 5:20 to go in the first half, Guy hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key, his third trey of the game, then hustled back on defense and drew a charge, much to the delight of the Sacramento crowd.

After Guy’s shot swished through the bottom of the net, longtime Kings TV announcer Grant Napear said, “Boy, I think the Kings fans are going to love this young man.”

In his first two NBA Summer League games, Guy has scored a combined 23 points and hit five 3-pointers.

Guy will look to continue his stellar start to Summer League play on Wednesday, when the Kings host the Los Angeles Lakers at 5 p.m. Eastern to conclude the California Classic.

Sacramento will then head to Las Vegas for the NBA Summer League. The Kings' first game in Sin City is on Saturday against the Chinese national team at 11 p.m. Eastern.
