Following yesterday’s blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers the Dallas B team once again took a beating while facing the Memphis Grizzlies. Outmatched from tipoff by a vastly better Memphis squad, the Mavericks ended up losing 113-82, mostly due to the efforts of second year Grizzly player Hakim Warrick.

David Noel – Noel looked the best of any of the Maverick players on the floor today. That’s a shame for Dallas though as Noel is actually Milwaukee’s second round pick. Noel got the start today and looked confident on both ends. In his previous game against the Lakers he scored little and didn’t rebound while still looking polished. Today however he notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards (4 offensive) and was much more involved.

DeAngelo Collins – DeAngelo had a poor game on the court today. It looked as if he carried his second half fade in day two into day three scoring only 2 points on 1 of 6 shots and pulling down only 2 rebounds.

Ryan Forehan-Kelly – Ryan had another nice outing today from behind the arc hitting all 3 of his three pointers and scoring 11 points.

Ivan Koljevic – Ivan notched a quiet 9 assists in only 24 minutes of play.

Hakim Warrick – As if taking day one’s comments to heart, Hakim showed some flashes of a midrange game today in addition to his usual bursts of extreme athleticism. He felt so comfortable that at one point during a lull in the offense he shot a three from the corner with a surprising amount of fluidity. It didn’t go down, but it looked as though he might be able to tap into that kind of range at some point. Warrick lead all scorers with 21 points on 10 of 18 shooting including the spectacular monster dunks and put backs he has become known for. All in all this was a very promising game for Hakim and it will bode well for his future in the NBA if he continues to showcase these additional threats throughout the rest of the summer league.

Kyle Lowry – In an unexpected surprise first round pick Kyle Lowry showed up to play for the Memphis Grizzlies. He scored 9 points and dished 5 assists and pretty much got to the rim at will. Lowry was easily the fastest player on the floor and had no trouble going baseline to baseline or weaving through defenders. Lowry was also very vocal during the game and played aggressive defense while talking a surprising amount of trash for his first game; much of it with Japanese fan favorite Yuta Tabuse.

Anthony Roberson – Roberson scored 16 points and dropped 4 assists. Despite shooting 14 times in 20 minutes Grizzlies GM Jerry West was heard yelling at Roberson to shoot on a few occasions. A testament to what West feels is one of Anthony’s strengths. Going 3 for 5 from behind the arc Roberson showed that when open he can hit his shots. Anthony also showcased some impressive ball handling skills, faking his man out of position on several occasions.
