It wasn't the matchup of former Maryland basketball standouts it could've been, but Jake Layman held up more than his share of the bargain.

Layman shined Sunday in the Trailblazers' 85-68 win over the Kevin Huerter-less Hawks, scoring a game-high 23 points in 20 minutes. Layman shot 9-for-14 with four rebounds, two blocks and two steals, but most important, he showed off that shooting stroke that's always looked better in form than in results. In his first two years, his dismal 23.9 percent shooting from deep limited his opportunities to earn reserve minutes for a perennial playoff team. He hit four of five 3-pointers today, though, and is averaging 18.5 points on 57 percent shooting through two games in Las Vegas.

Still, his efficiency isn't what had his name bouncing around on Twitter over the weekend. It was this tomahawk putback dunk against the Jazz. 

That footage won't be used in any instructional videos about boxing out on defense, but still a another poster dunk for the NBA's emerging king of summer league dunking (see: last year). Layman, entering his third and final year of his rookie contract, wanted to use the summer league to show the Blazers he's ready to take on a real role. So far, so good.

"He's been doing a great job of just playing composed and picking his spots and finding them ... He's one of those guys that if he gets the opportunity and he's playing with confidence, he can really make an impact," Blazers assistant Jim Moran, the team's summer league coach, told "You want to walk off the court remembering his performance. I think he's had two great games so far."

Melo Trimble, meanwhile, totaled 11 points in a pair of games for the Bulls over the weekend. Trimble's getting sporadic minutes behind former Villanova star Ryan Arcidiacono and when he does check in, he's been too unselfish at times. He did have a nice series late Sunday night against the Lakers, though, swishing a familiar crossover-into-pullup jumper and then scoring on an equally familiar driving layup. His crossover is a weapon even against some of the legit NBA hopefuls, but his challenge, as always, is that he lacks the size or athleticism to finish his drives after crossing over; his next few drives were altered in the paint or missed narrowly.
