LAS VEGAS – Trips to Las Vegas feel better when they end on a win.

The consolation round of the NBA Summer League gave teams a chance to experience that Friday. They had already been eliminated from the chance to win the tournament title, but at least some ended on a high note.

Many of the top performers were already done for the week, sitting out the games so as not to risk injuries.

The winners’ bracket of the tournament resumes with six second-round games Saturday.

Here’s a look at how local players fared:

Indiana Pacers 116, Brooklyn Nets 79

James Webb III (NIC/Nets): 25 minutes, nine points (3 for 7 FG), seven rebounds, two steals.

Dallas Mavericks 96, Washington Wizards 92

Jacob Wiley (EWU/Mavericks): 20 minutes, six points (2 for 3 FG), four rebounds, one block.

Minnesota Timberwolves 83, Denver Nuggets 71

Victor Sanders (Idaho/Nuggets): 25 minutes, eight points (4 for 11 FG), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks.
