NBA Summer League 2013: Suns Score 100, Remains Unbeaten

The Phoenix Suns summer league squad took the hardwood in Las Vegas once again on Tuesday night and came on top against the Memphis Grizzlies by the final score of 100-88.

The Suns began the game trailing the Grizzlies 19-26 after the first quarter but went on to outscore Memphis 81-62 in the final three quarters. In doing so the Suns broke the century mark scoring wise, an impressive feat in the NBA summer league due to the fact that teams play just 10 minute quarters.

The 29th overall pick of the Phoenix Suns, Archie Goodwin had himself an solid game last night. Goodwin led all scorers with 22 points despite taking just 11 shots. Goodwin was aggressive throughout the game attacking the rim earning himself 11 trips to the free throw line; Goodwin was also perfect from beyond the arc making all three of his three-point attempts.

Goodwin was not the only Sun who had a great game last night. Once again it was Arinze Onuaku who came up big for the Suns off the bench. In roughly 20 minutes of play, Onuaku got himself a solid double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds; six of those boards were on the offensive glass. Diante Garrett contributed 12 assists off the bench.

The Suns now are one of the four unbeaten teams in the Las Vegas Summer league, and will be owners of the third seed heading into the Summer League tournament. The Suns are set to take on the winner of the Atlanta/Portland game (Wednesday game) on Thursday 8:00 PM Eastern standard time.
