    Who were the best NBA rookies at the Las Vegas Summer League? Which young veterans performed best? And who was most disappointing?Lorenzo Alexander Jersey . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St. Jeremy Kerley Jersey . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell and Cincinnati counterpart Bryan Price had definite ideas about areas to improve with their struggling teams during the last 2 1/2 months of the season. Andre Holmes Jersey .Theyre both going to have to wait a little longer.Counsells Brewers missed a golden opportunity to pull out a win over the Reds on Friday at Great American Ball Park, loading the bases with one out in the ninth inning before Scooter Gennett and Ryan Braun popped up to help the Reds hold on for a 5-4 win.Prices Reds committed one fielding error and another mental lapse on defense and had to overcome Tony Cingranis ninth-inning difficulties while trying to close out the win and snap a three-game losing streak.The rebuilding Reds first-half pitching woes, especially in relief, have been well-chronicled, but they went into the All-Star Game break on a three-game losing streak fueled by shoddy defense and embarrassing mental errors.It really comes down to the consistency of play, said Price, whose team lost seven of its last eight games and nine of 11 before the four-day holiday. We played 38 games that were decided by one or two runs, so we were in a lot of games. We just want to get better in all facets.We have areas with room to grow statistically. We want to make sure the young guys show growth through the process. One hundred and sixty-two games is a beast. Team defense, overall pitchiing, walks and home runs -- we want to see those numbers go down. Nathan Peterman Jersey. Counsell was hoping to see his similarly rebuilding team take advantage of opening the post-break schedule against a team actually below his in the standings after losing the last two games and three of the last four before the break.Nothing changes, he said. We took a little break. Its not a stopping point. Well try to do the same things weve been doing.We kind of limped into the All-Star break, but we played some really good teams over the last 30 games, and the margin of error is less. You could see it every night. Youve got to take advantage of every opportunity. The two series against St. Louis, we didnt do that.It doesnt promise to get any easier for Milwaukee. After finishing the three-game series against the Reds, which is scheduled to continue Saturday night with Jimmy Nelson (5-7) starting for the Brewers against John Lamb (1-6), Milwaukee is scheduled to face the National League Central-leading Chicago Cubs and the third-place Pittsburgh Pirates in nine of the next 13 games.After finishing with the Brewers, the Reds are due to play six straight games against last-place teams -- Atlanta from the NL East and Arizona from the NL West -- all in Cincinnati.
