Brandon Miller had more fouls than points in a poor second start for the Charlotte Hornets in the Summer League on Wednesday night.
Miller scored just six points but committed eight fouls in a 98-83 loss to the Golden State Warriors, playing for 28 minutes in the game.
It comes just two days before Miller, the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, plays No. 1 pick Victor Wembanyama when he makes his debut with the San Antonio Spurs on Friday.
Miller showed flashes of brilliance with 18 points in his opener Monday night against the Wembanyama-less Spurs, but his team lost 98-77.
Miller, 20, was not wearing the pink sneakers that turned heads Monday, when she admitted nerves played a role in an inconsistent start.

Miller admitted after his first game that he had to fight nerves with his new team
“We got nervous, so we’ll be good,” Miller said after Monday’s game. ‘I’m a bit frustrated because I don’t like to lose, but I had fun.
‘Seeing a different environment than the college experience was fun. I think he was relaxed emotionally.
Just let the game come to me, make all the right plays and just be there for my teammates.
Miller as a controversial pick for the Hornets due to his alleged role in a murder in Tuscaloosa earlier this year.
Tuscaloosa police testified that Miller delivered a handgun to teammate Darius Miles, which was ultimately used by another man, Michael Lynn Davis, to kill the woman.
While Miles and Davis remain in jail awaiting trial on capital murder charges, Miller has not been arrested in the case. His attorney says he never handled the firearm and he had no idea the shooting would take place.
Miller’s trainer, Nate Oats, said it was a case of “wrong place, wrong time.”
