LAS VEGAS (AP) – Naz Reid scored 20 points in 19 minutes in Minnesota’s 85-77 victory over Brooklyn.

“The goal since we even got here, trying to win everything,” Reid said. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but we definitely have been able to take over this past week. I just want to continue that tomorrow.”

Jordan McLaughlin added 12 points, and Mitchell Creek had 11 for Minnesota, the only undefeated team at 6-0.

“It’s all credit to the players, and how they compete so far,” Minnesota coach Pablo Prigioni said. “As coaches, we want to help them to become a championship team. This is Summer League, but at the end of the day 32 teams show up in Vegas, only two (can) compete for the championship.”

Jarrett Allen led Brooklyn with 15 points and 14 rebounds in 20 minutes.
