Default Dion Waiters scores 27 points in summer league game

All those hours standing on the baseline are apparently starting to pay off for Dion Waiters. Coach Mike Brown was so excited about Waiters’ defensive effort in Thursday’s 72-66 summer league victory over the San Antonio Spurs that he interrupted Waiters’ post-game live shot with NBA TV to give him a hug.

In his finest performance in four summer league games, Waiters had 27 points and six rebounds to lead the Cavaliers into the quarterfinals at 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Waiters was more vocal defensively on Wednesday, he paid attention to more than just the guy with the ball and he was more aware on the court. He also shot 12 of 23 and flashed a variety of spin moves around the basket.

“Today my defense was better, I was talking more and in the right spots,” he said.
