    LAS VEGAS — Jordan Bowden came off the bench to score 13 of his 18 points in a dominant first half and the Clippers eased past the Sacramento Kings, 80-70, on Monday night to even their record in summer league play.

    Kobe Brown, the last pick of the first round (No. 30 overall), started and contributed 12 points and eight rebounds for the Clippers (1-1). Brown was 5 for 14 from the field (1 for 6 from long range) in 30 minutes. Second-round draft pick Jordan Miller also started, finishing with six points and three rebounds in 26 minutes.

    Veteran Xavier Moon scored 18 points on 6-for-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocked shots in 29 minutes. Moussa Diabate added five points and team-high nine rebounds in 24 minutes.

    Two of three second-round picks played for the Kings (1-1). Colby Jones started and had team-highs of 19 points and nine rebounds. Jalen Slawson had two points and three assists off the bench. Keon Ellis pitched in with 16 points, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.
