    ORLANDO, Fla. Trae Waynes Jersey . -- A look at some of the highlights from the five games on the schedule Friday at the Orlando Summer League:THE REPLACEMENTS WINOn paper, the Orlando Magic White was the secondary team for the Magic in this weeks Orlando NBA Summer League. The White unit was the only team out of the 10 that didnt have a legitimate NBA player or first- or second-round draft pick. But it was the White, comprised of D-League and overseas players, that finished the week 5-0 and won the league championship after defeating previously unbeaten Detroit in overtime, 87-84, on Friday at Amway Center.It has a lot to do with their spirit, their fight, said Bill Peterson, who served as the White coach. I told them all week I was really proud of them, guys who werent playing were up off the bench, the bench was engaged.The White showed itself to be scrappy all week, with different players stepping up to make big plays. On Friday, it was well-traveled point guard Justin Dentmon who came up with the play of the game when he knocked down a one-legged, contested 3-pointer with 3.7 seconds left in overtime for the win. His shot provided the only points scored in the overtime period.For the group of castoffs, it was a gratifying feeling to win it all and perhaps get the attention of some NBA scouts.Its a credit to the coach, he brought us together, said Dentmon, who scored 16 points. We had never played with each other in our lives, and for us to come together and bond like that is unbelievable. We started making jokes in the locker room that they call us underdogs, but the better name is `The Replacements. In the movie, `The Replacements came together and they won, just like us.LEARNING CURVELos Angeles Clippers rookie forward Brice Johnson showed some potential this week, but the first-round draft pick clearly needs more time to develop.The 25th overall pick out of North Carolina had three impressive games; Johnson scored 23 points in back-to-back games, and then had 19 points. But he followed that with a six-point effort that came on 1-for-13 shooting during Fridays 106-77 loss to the New York Knicks for last place. The Clippers, despite having a couple of future players on the Orlando Summer League team, finished 0-5 on the week.Johnson averaged 15.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and shot 50 percent from the field for the week.A STEP BACK TO TAKE STEP UPDuring last years Orlando Summer League, Detroit Pistons first-round pick Stanley Johnson showed everyone he can score with the best of them.But there was little else.This week, however, the sophomore was out to prove he could do far more than be a scorer. The lottery pick (eighth overall) from 2015 showed his game is indeed growing.Johnson, a 6-foot-7 small forward, picked up his defense this week and got the ball to the right places consistently. During Fridays losing effort to the Orlando Magic White, he scored 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting while grabbing five rebounds and giving out five assists.PLAYING STRONGAnyone with eyes could see that Orlando Magic second-round pick Stephen Zimmerman will need to spend some time in the weight room this summer if the 6-11 post player has any hope of contributing this upcoming season.Also apparent this week was the toughness of the 19-year-old one-and-done player from UNLV, which he flashed at times for the Orlando Magic Blue. He blocked shots and mixed it up with stronger and bulkier players throughout the week, which gave his new coaches hope for what could come in the future -- and with some time in the weight room. Danielle Hunter Jersey . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days. Jerick McKinnon Jersey . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. LOS ANGELES -- DeVante Parker caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill with 36 seconds to play, and the Miami Dolphins rallied for two late scores to spoil Jared Goffs NFL debut with a 14-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.Tannehill passed for 172 yards in the fifth straight victory for the Dolphins (6-4), who were dominated by the Rams defense until their final two drives on a rainy day at the Coliseum. Miami barely kept alive its longest winning streak since 2008.After Jarvis Landry caught a 10-yard TD pass with 4:02 to play, the Dolphins got the ball right back and drove downfield for Parkers diving TD reception in the corner.Goff went 17 of 31 for 134 yards in a quiet debut by the NFLs No. 1 pick in the Rams 10th game of the season.Todd Gurley scored on a 24-yard run in the first quarter for Los Angeles (4-6), but neither team managed much offense until Miamis late surge.Goff got the ball back at the Los Angeles 41 with 29 seconds left, but moved the Rams only 12 yards before throwing an incompletion in the end zone as time expired.The Dolphins spent the week in California after beating San Diego last weekend, but their offense was mostly awful until Tannehill got it moving in the final minutes. Parker had eight catches for 79 yards, and Jay Ajayi rushed for 77 yards.Nearly seven months after the Rams traded up to draft Goff, their prized rookie finally got his first start and was introduced to raucous cheers on a rare rainy day in downtown LA, but he made few memorable plays in a conservative game plan. Ben Gedeon Jersey. The rookie got his first NFL completion on a short pass to fellow rookie Tyler Higbee, but neither team made much headway in the first three quarters. Goff showed mobility in the pocket and made a handful of key third-down throws to keep the Rams moving. They added a 46-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein in the third quarter.But after Zuerlein missed a 48-yard attempt off the upright with 6:40 to play, the Dolphins finally mounted a scoring drive capped when Landry caught a short pass and his teammates pushed the pile 4 yards into the end zone.INJURY REPORTDolphins: OG Laremy Tunsil started at left tackle in place of Branden Albert, but injured his shoulder during the first half.
