CJ McCollum sent the Portland Trail Blazers into overtime against the Chicago Bulls, where they'd eventually lose, with less than 10 seconds remaining to highlight Day 5 action of the Las Vegas Summer League.
It's the proving ground for aspiring stars, so naturally, the players are going to do their best to showcase their ability to score, often times without a shot-selection conscience; such was the case on Tuesday night.
Both the Bulls and Blazers shot less than 40 percent, but the game still had all of the drama of a regular season contest as it took an extra frame to decide the winner. Here is the roundup of that game and all of the others that capped another interesting night of summer action.
Bulls 80, Trail Blazers 78
McCollum led all scorers with 27 points after tying the game with 10 seconds remaining, but did so on 8-of-25 shooting from the field and was a paltry 1-of-5 from beyond the arc. Spain's Victor Claver had the best all-around game and put together a line of 10 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and two steals. Thomas Robinson added 12 points and a monstrous 18 rebounds and Meyers Leonard poured in 12 points of his own.
Marquis Teague stole the show and had 25 points on 7-of-14 shooting and went 3-for-3 from the three-point line. Chicago saw five of its players score in double figures, despite only having 11 collective assists.
Suns 100, Grizzlies 88
The Phoenix Suns led by rookie Archie Goodwin used a 31-point second quarter to snatch the momentum from the Memphis Grizzlies and win convincingly. Goodwin finished with 22 points and four rebounds, while P.J. Tucker added 18 points and five rebounds.
Donte Green led the way for the Grizzlies and scored 18 points in a balanced effort that saw all five starters score in double figures. Jack Cooley notched a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds.
Washington 97, Denver 69
Five players scored in double figures as the Washington Wizards destroyed the Denver Nuggets in a game that was never close. Jan Vesely knows this is a make-or-break year and led the way with 18 points and three rebounds. Glen Rice Jr. added 13 points on 6-of-12 from the field, while Otto Porter Jr. scored four points on 2-of-4 shooting in limited action.
Evan Fournier led the Nuggets in scoring with 12 points, but committed seven turnovers as Denver shot just 33 percent from the three-point line.
D-League Select 82, Mavericks 75
Both teams committed over 20 turnovers, but the D-League select was the lesser of two evils as they defeated the Dallas Mavericks behind Kyle Weaver's 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting off the bench. Elijah Millsap and Stefhon Hannah added 12 apiece.
