D-League Select 94, Washington 74 - Scotty Hopson is killing it for the D-League Select team. After opening with 27 points against the Rockets, he scored a team high 20 points and grabbed six rebounds too as DLS coasted through the second half to the 20 point win over the Wizards. Jarrid Famous continued his strong play for Washington with a game high 21 points paired with 10 rebounds, including six on the offensive glass. Washington's biggest flaw in this game? Shooting 6% (1-17) on three pointers. Yeah, that ain't gonna work, guys.
Jamil Wilson picked up the DNP-Coach's Decision in this one.
Houston 108, Phoenix 89 - The Rockets went up 13-0 to open this one and then it was over. I mean, yeah, okay, Phoenix cut it to just seven point by the end of the third quarter, but who are we fooling here? Six different Rockets scored in double digits on the way to the win, led by a 21 point outing from D.J. Kennedy.
Jerel McNeal started for the Suns, but he only played 9 minutes. He contributed two points, one rebound, and one assist in his brief time on the floor.
Toronto 81, Chicago 66 - Hey, it's the closest game of our three-pack. Yay.
Five Raptors cracked into double figures as Toronto won three of the four quarters in this game. Norman Powell, who may have time travelled from 1974 to play in this game, led the Raptors with 19 points. Doug McDermott and Cameron Bairstow were the top scorers on the Bulls with just 11 points each. McDermott went 0-4 behind the three-point arc and hoo boy, if Doug ain't hitting threes....
Vander Blue was the most successful former Marquette guy on Sunday, as he picked up the start and played 25 minutes. He scored 7 points on 2-7 shooting, which included misses on all three of his long range attempts. Blue also chipped in five rebounds and three assists.
