    • July 9, 2023

    LAS VEGAS — The Lakers didn’t need another 20-point performance from Max Christie to secure their second consecutive summer league win, a 93-75 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

    They got contributions from several players in the win, led by Colin Castleton’s 21-point, 14-rebound double-double to go with three assists.

    D’Moi Hodge had 16 points, five rebounds and two blocks, while first-round pick Jalen Hood-Schifino recorded 15 points and five assists.

    Second-round pick Maxwell Lewis added 12 on 5-of-9 shooting while Christie finished with 11 points, six rebounds and four blocks.

    Brandon Miller, the No. 2 pick in the June 22 NBA draft, had 10 points (4-of-17 shooting), seven rebounds and four assists for Charlotte.

    The Lakers were coming off a Friday win over the Golden State Warriors.

    They’ll play the Boston Celtics Wednesday (7 p.m.) at the Thomas & Mack Center, the third of five games they will play in Las Vegas.
