Summer League: Miles Plumlee stuffs Jabari Parker

Miles Plumlee’s block on fellow Dukie Jabari Parker on Sunday night wrapped up what was a telling game in his second outing of the 2014 Las Vegas Summer League.

After an ugly first time out, Plumlee got back to doing what he does best — affecting the game for the Suns on the defensive end and on the backboards. Plumlee finished the game with 12 rebounds and two blocks, and while he again struggled on offense, he did hit two teammates for assists and scored two of his points the hard way. Once, Plumlee turned around on the block with the shotclock winding down to hit a fadeaway. Not long after, he went with a classic Tim Duncan bank shot from 15 feet.

But back to the two-handed stuff on the 2014 No. 2 pick. The play was good enough to make NBA.com’s top-10 list of plays, coming in at No. 8, and as much as it said about Plumlee’s night, it also said a bit about Parker’s. Phoenix, and starting forward Elias Harris, held the Duke product to 4-for-15 shooting and six turnovers. Harris had a Suns-best plus-22 plus/minus while Parker had a Bucks-worst minus-18.

Here’s a full highlight reel of the Suns’ 93-82 victory in Las Vegas.
