Clarke finished with 18 points, 12 rebounds, and three blocks in the win, continuing his impressive Summer League play.
Josh Perkins helped lead the Charlotte Hornets to a win over the Utah Jazz, playing 22 minutes, finishing with four points, five assists, but unfortunately three turnovers. Perkins Summer League output has been a bit uneven. He looked like he fit in the fold in the first game, and although he hasn’t had a bad Summer League, its not clear whether he has done enough to secure himself any sort of future with the Hornets.
Clarke, obviously has a future with the Griz, but the Summer League has been a quality demonstration that he can hold his own with the worst of the NBA has to offer. It will be interesting to see how Clarke’s game works during a NBA game with real NBA stars.
The Grizzlies Summer League season continues against the New Orleans Pelicans tonight, at 6:00 pm, on ESPN2.
