On the holiday that is “Amnesty Andray Day”, the Wizards prevailed in their fourth summer league game, 83 to 77 over the Memphis Grizzlies despite 35 points from Baltimore native, Josh Selby.
No time to waste though as we go straight to the Bullets Points:
- Chris Singleton was determined from the onset to showcase his offensive talents. While the results weren’t all bad, Singleton was oftentimes doing too much. As a rookie, Singleton was mainly a spot-up shooter however, in this summer league he’s gotten to put the ball on the floor and play the role of point forward. Regardless of any limited success he’s had in this summer league, he won’t be playing the same role once the regular season rolls around, obviously. Enough with the negative though; it’s been a good summer league for Chris Singleton.
- Now that Andray Blatche has been waived, Ernie Grunfeld’s next roster move needs to be finding a legitimate back-up point guard, because Shelvin Mack is not that guy.
- Tonight’s game was a struggle for Bradley Beal. He scored 14 points on 5/15 shooting, but he did also chip in six rebounds and he had a plus-11 in his 26 minutes on the court. Even when he struggles shooting, Beal can find other ways to be productive, which is important.
- Somehow Shavlik Randolph had 16 points and 15 rebounds in 21 minutes.
- Jan Vesely’s sweet shooting stroke wasn’t on tonight vs. Memphis. He even air-balled one of his jump shots in the second quarter.
- Speaking of Vesely, he’s far more confident and his jump shot has been much improved in Las Vegas, but two things have not improved — his hands and free-throw shooting.
- John Wall made an appearance courtside for the second straight summer league game.
