LAS VEGAS (WTAQ) - The Milwaukee Bucks were eliminated from the NBA Summer League tournament in Las Vegas, after losing to the L.A. Lakers 72-68 in Thursday’s second round.

Center Robert Sacre hit a post up shot in the lane with 1:44 left to put Los Angeles in front for good.

Former Wisconsin forward Marcus Landry led the Lakers in scoring with 18 points. Landry, a Milwaukee native, has been training in suburban New Berlin in the hopes of latching onto his first NBA team since he graduated from the UW in 2009.

Second-year forward John Henson led the Bucks with 16 points, 13 rebounds, and three blocked shots. Bucks’ rookie guard Nate Wolters led a late Milwaukee rally that fell short. He scored all 9 of his points in the second half.

The Bucks were seeded 9th, and the Lakers 8th among the 22 teams in the Summer League tournament.

Milwaukee will play a consolation game Friday night against San Antonio to close out its Vegas schedule.
