Dallas 76, Sacramento 73 - And outta nowhere comes Jae Crowder playing for the Mavericks. Of course, he went out there and did Jae Crowder things, scoring 16 points with eight rebounds, two assists, and a steal. Josh Akognon had a game high 22 points for the victorious Mavericks, while Drew Gordon came off the bench to lead the Kings with 17 points. Trent Lockett came off the bench for the Kings as well, getting a somewhat surprising 22 minutes of action. Lockett had a line that Marquette fans aren't terribly surprised to see: eight points, four rebounds, one assist, and one steal.
Chicago 81, Memphis 67 - Ways to lose a summer league game: Allowing a 17-1 run, which is what the Grizzlies did. Andrew Goudelock poured in 26 for the Bulls, while Tony Wroten had 17 to lead the Grizzlies. If you're wondering about Vander Blue, well... I'll let USA Today's Dan Wolken explain how Blue looked while going 2-12 from the field:
I thought Vander Blue might be an interesting summer league signing, but he looks out of his depth.— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) July 14, 2013
Milwaukee 88, Denver 74 - The Bucks had the lead from the word go in this one, largely because John Henson went for 19 points and 13 rebounds. Four Nuggets scored in double digits, but no one had more than the 11 points put up by Ben Uzoh and Luke Harangody. Darius Johnson-Odom was right behind that pair with 10 points and he added a rebound and three assists in 15 minutes off the bench. Junior Cadougan didn't see any action, but that's what happens when Nate Wolters is coming off the bench in front of you.
