The NBA Summer League will continue Tuesday afternoon with seven more games taking place between the Cox Pavilion and Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of the UNLV Runnin' Rebels. Summer League's leading scorer, Andrew Goudelock, is just one of a handful of players that will look to stay hot in the desert heat as the fifth day of the Las Vegas Summer League rolls on.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Miami Heat, 4 p.m. ET
The Timberwolves haven't been very lucky thus far in Summer League considering Marcus Morris hit a buzzer-beating game-winner on Monday to keep them winless, but Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat will give them another chance at putting their mark on the win column. Robbie Hummel, last year's second-round pick, is currently leading the Wolves with 15 points per game as he waits for this year's first round picks -- Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng -- to get themselves going (they're currently averaging less than 10 points combined).
Miami will be playing their eighth game in ten days after already competing in the Orlando Summer League, meaning there might be some tired legs taking the court Tuesday afternoon. Second-round pick James Ennis led the Heat in scoring in their last outing with 11 points while former Brooklyn Nets pick Damion James scored 10 points off the bench after playing in the NBA Development League this past season.
Sacramento Kings vs. Toronto Raptors, 6 p.m.
The Kings are also looking to get into the win column for the first time on Tuesday when they play the Raptors. Draft pick Ray McCallum is averaging 17 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 steals through the Kings first two games, showing the things he did in college at Detroit translate at least to the NBA Summer League. First round pick Ben McLemore has shown flashes, too, but he's been in a shooting slump that's seen him make just eight of his 35 shot attempts through his team's first two games.
Toronto is being led by a player that might be too good for the Summer League circuit as Jonas Valanciunas is tearing it up in Vegas. The former first round pick is averaging a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds in just 28 minutes of action. Fellow former Raptors draft pick Terrence Ross is averaging 11.5 points, matching the output of D-League standout Chris Wright as the only other players averaging more than nine points per game.
Golden State Warriors vs. Milwaukee Bucks, 6:30 p.m.
A pair of undefeated teams will take the stage in the first game at the Thomas & Mack when the Bucks and Grizzlies play their third game of the summer. The Warriors are led by Kent Bazemore as he shows with his 18 points per contest that he's more than just a human highlight film on the Golden State sidelines. Draymond Green isn't far behind Bazemore with his 16.5 points, but the regular season rotation player is in a Summer League slump, shooting just 6-of-18 from the field and 1-of-7 from 3-point territory.
The Bucks have one of the best big men in Summer League on their roster in last year's first-round pick John Henson. The former North Carolina standout scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in his lone game for Milwaukee's Summer League entry. Aside from him, former Dallas Mavericks guard Dominique Jones is averaging 17 points as he looks to prove his decision to leave the Mavs instead of playing for their D-League affiliate was a wise one.
Chicago Bulls vs. Portland Trail Blazers, 8:00 p.m.
Drew Goudelock is doing the same thing he's done everywhere he's been given the opportunity -- get buckets -- with the Bulls' Summer League squad. The former Los Angeles Lakers' draft pick and D-League MVP is averaging a Summer League- high 28.5 points per game thanks to his 8-of-11 3-point shooting. Another former D-League standout is making waves with the Bulls, too, as Malcolm Thomas has corralled 32 rebounds through Chicago's first two games. Goudelock's backcourtmate, Marquis Teague, is scoring 13.5 points.
The Blazers have been led by first round pick C.J. McCollum with his 18.5 points per contest. Their only two other scorers in double figures were selected in last year's draft as Will Barton and big man Meyers Leonard are both averaging 10.5 points.
Phoenix Suns vs. Memphis Grizzlies, 8:30 p.m.
The Suns aren't expected to win many regular season games this year, but Jeff Hornacek's squad is off to a solid start in Vegas with wins in their first two games. The Morris brothers are back to doing what they did as Kansas Jayhawks with Markieff averaging 20 points and Marcus 16, the latter hitting a big game-winner on Monday. Dionte Christmas, a standout for the Celtics last year in Summer League play, is averaging 11.5 points as he tries to make the Suns' squad.
The Grizzlies scored just 58 points in their loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, but that shouldn't be too surprising as Tony Wroten is the only player on their roster that played for Memphis last season (and he's shooting 5-of-23 from the field and 0-for-7 from beyond the arc). Notre Dame's Jack Cooley has been one of the better undrafted free agents, though, as his gritty play is translating to 14 points and eight rebound averages -- despite averaging six fouls per contest.
Denver Nuggets vs. Washington Wizards, 10 p.m.
Neither Denver nor Washington picked up wins in their first two Summer League games, but one will leave Tuesday's contest with a mark in the win column. Evan Fournier is leading the Nuggets with 15 points, but it's Luke Harangody making the biggest impression as he averages 14 points and 4.5 rebounds along with 3-of-4 shooting from 3-point territory.
The Wizards are barely averaging 60 points per game through their first two contests. Chris Singleton, the team's only player to average double-figures, will be looking for help from his teammates if Washington's fortunes are going to change on Tuesday evening. Glen Rice Jr. has been good for a couple of highlight plays, but the former D-Leaguer is shooting just 30 percent from the field and 3-of-12 from beyond the arc, keeping him from making a true impact on the offensive end.
Dallas Mavericks vs. D-League Select, 10:30 p.m.
The Mavericks are led by Josh Akognon with 19 points as he looks to cement himself to an NBA roster as an undersized scorer that so seldom finds a place on regular season rosters. Jae Crowder is averaging 16 points, too, but it's Gal Mekel who is likely garnering the most attention from onlookers. The Israeli point guard is averaging 12.5 points and four assists as he attempts to show he belongs in the NBA after playing overseas the past few years.
The D-League Select team features a very good coaching staff in Alex Jensen, Joel Abelson and Casey Hill, but the players are being talked about in this preview. To that end, Darnell Jackson and Stefhon Hannah have both looked very good for the undefeated club made up of the best D-Leaguers not on an NBA Summer League roster.
The 6:30, 8:30 and 10:30 games can all be watched on ESPN3. All other games are available either on NBA TV or the Summer League Live broadband account.
