After covering NBA Summer League play in Orlando, I admit we were a bit lax when it came to Vegas. Blame today’s OVC Media Day partially for that.
So what did we miss? If you missed Monday Night’s final, you missed one of the performances of the entire event.
Former Belmont standout Ian Clark earned Vegas NBA Summer League Championship Game Most Valuable Player honors (say that three times fast) as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Phoenix Suns, 91-77.
Clark earned the MVP honors thanks in part to setting several NBA Summer League records, scoring 33 points in 28 minutes off the bench, which included 12-for-19 shooting and 7-for-10 from three-point distance.
Clark scored 19 points in the second quarter alone.
You may remember a little more than a week ago, the former Belmont guard was also named to the All-Orlando NBA Summer League Team after averaging over 16 points per game for the Miami Heat.
I’ve said it once, if not ten times already: Please, can someone give this guy a contract already?
After the win, Clark uploaded this picture to instagram with his two new trophies.
Seriously NBA Teams. Whenever you want to get around to that contract…
