You shouldn’t put too much stock into one summer league game, but the Miami Heat looked absolutely terrible in Saturday night’s loss, and they rested some of their better players. The Sacramento Kings torched the Warriors in their victory, and you can’t help but be reminded of their run in Las Vegas last year. The Kings are summer league kings until proven otherwise. Watching both clubs, I have no choice but to lay the chalk with Sacramento.
