Andrew Harrison made a huge statement tonight in his first game in the Las Vegas Summer League. He led all scorers with 23 points in the Grizzlies’ 20-point rout of the NBA D-League Select Team. He hit all 12 of his free throw attempts, dished out four assists and grabbed four rebounds in 24 minutes played.
Harrison shared the backcourt with Wade Baldwin IV, Memphis’ prized first-round pick, to start the game. Baldwin got a couple more minutes on the court in his starting point guard role, and scored 14 points with six rebounds and three assists. It was a good summer debut for both guards.
For Harrison, Game 1 couldn’t have gone any better. If he continues to play at this level over the remainder of the summer showcase, Memphis will have a hard time passing him up for a guaranteed deal.
Huge game for the former Cat.
