NBA Summer League: Perrantes, Robinson duel in the desert
Robinson, and his Washington Wizards, got the better of the matchup, in an 84-79 win over Perrantes and the New Orleans Pelicans.
Robinson had 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting and three assists in 25 minutes in the win.
Perrantes got the start for New Orleans, and had six points and seven assists in 32 minutes, but was just 1-for-6 from the field.
The last time the two faced each other was in the 2017 season. Perrantes had 22 points to Robinson’s seven in an 80-78 double-overtime loss to Tech in February, and 18 points to Robinson’s 11 in a 71-48 win over the Hokies in January.
Robinson got the start in the second UVA-Tech matchup of his freshman season, in 2016, a 67-49 ‘Hoos win, in which Robinson had 16 points and Perrantes had 15 for UVA.
Perrantes, a 2017 UVA alum, split his 2017-2018 season with Cleveland and the G-League before spending the 2018-2019 season in France.
Robinson led Virginia Tech to the Sweet Sixteen this past March.
