Young's 35 sinks D-League stars
LAS VEGAS -- The Memphis Grizzlies stayed perfect in the 2010 NBA Summer League with their 101-85 victory over the NBA D-League Select (0-3) Thursday night from UNLV's Thomas & Mack Center. Memphis claimed the ninth and final lead change of the night with help from a 10-0 run over a 3:38 time frame that overlapped into the fourth quarter
Trailing by one at 71-70, Sam Young, who scored a game-high 35 points, hit consecutive free throws to put Memphis up for good with 2:48 remaining in the third quarter. The Grizzlies then rattled off 31 of the game's next 45 points for a 16-point win.
The NBA D-League Select was hindered by an inability to score once Memphis took the last lead of the game, which included only making eight free throws and three field goals over the final 13:06. The Grizzlies even went a stretch of 8:13 without making a field goal.
Young and Hasheem Thabeet combined to score 56 of Memphis' 101 points, with Thabeet contributing 21. Young was able to connect for eight or more points in each quarter, while Thabeet went a different route. He only had six points at the half, but threw down 15 more in the final two frames.
Thabeet was able to notch a double-double, as he recorded 14 rebounds. He added six blocks to his game resume, as well.
Darrell Arthur joined Young and Thabeet in double figures with 17 tallies of his own.
Mike Gansey, Yaroslav Korolev and Jonathan Wallace led the NBA D-League Select in scoring after all were non-starters in the game. Gansey paced the team with 17, while Korolev had 12 to Wallace's 11. Larry Owens chipped in 11, while Russell Robinson had 10.
