Wiz Win, But Griz Dominate

Wizards 83, Grizzlies 77

Josh Selby and Jeremy Pargo.  Those are the two names viewers of the Memphis Grizzlies vs Washington Wizards summer league game will remember.  Not Beal.  Not Mack.  Not Vesely.   The duo for the Grizzlies were clearly the two best players on the floor (for this game at least) combining for 2/3rds of Memphis’ points,  51 of the team’s 77.  Selby had 35 points and hit 7 out of 8 three pointers.

Selby was drafted by the Grizzlies in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft and played for the Memphis D-League affiliate last season.  This year, Selby looks like he may be ready to join the big boys and fill in some of the vacated OJ Mayo role.  The former Kansas Jayhawk was the 49th overall pick and shows that you can find SOMETHING in the 2nd round.  (Satoransky was drafted #32 overall in 2012 by the Wizards, and may never play for the team).

With those two players playing great basketball, Bradley Beal disappeared.  For the Wizards, Shavlik Randolph led the team in scoring and Beal scored 14 points.  Shelvin Mack had 5 more turnovers and Jan Vesely had 6 more fouls.  Vesely’s improved jumper fell back into 2011-12 form.

Wiz finish up the Summer League on Wednesday afternoon...
