Summer League: Suns 94, Grizzlies 87


Posted Sunday July 22, 2012 12:05AM

The Phoenix Suns dominated the last three minutes of the game to take a 94-87 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in the final game at the Cox Pavilion in the ninth day of action at the 2012 NBA Summer League on the campus of the University of Las Vegas - Nevada.

Markieff Morris' 25-point game led the way for the Suns, who finished with seven players scoring in double figures. Marcus Landry scored 15, DeShawn Sims had 13 off the bench, and Charles Garcia and P.J. Tucker had 15 and 10, respectively.

Josh Selby, the leading scorer coming into Saturday's NBA Summer League games, finished with a team-high 23 points for Memphis. His efforts were complimented by 19 Tony Wroten points and 14 from Deon Thompson off the bench.

In an evenly matched first quarter, that featured three ties and leads by as many as five points by Phoenix and seven points by Memphis, the Grizzlies were led by Selby's 11 points. Morris chipped in with nine for the Suns, who trailed by 1, 26-27, at the period's end. The close game continued through the second quarter with Memphis edging Phoenix 24-22 in the quarter. At the end of two, Memphis had a three-point advantage, 51-48.

Memphis stretched its lead to as many as five points midway through the third quarter, but Phoenix answered back, tying the game at 57 with 5:41 to play as Landry drilled three free throws. Phoenix kept up the pressure, leading by five points of its own before ending the quarter down four, 71-67.

The game stayed close through the fourth quarter, with Phoenix tying the game twice in the final five minutes before turning up the heat and taking a three-point lead, 86-83 on a Morris jumper from downtown with 3:15 to play. The Suns never looked back, outscoring Memphis 6-1 in the game's last three minutes.

The game marks the final contest for the Suns at the 2012 NBA Summer League, while the Grizzlies close out their time in Las Vegas tomorrow when they play the Minnesota Timberwolves at 5 p.m. PT.
