Russ Smith hits game-winner to give Grizzlies ‘sudden death’ Summer League win (VIDEO)


Summer League is about player development above all else, but the games are set up to try to replicate real life NBA contests as much as possible.

Once we get to a second overtime session, however, enough is enough, and a “sudden death” rule is put into place where the next basket wins.

Russ Smith of the Grizzlies hit the heroic shot in this situation on Tuesday, to give Memphis the 73-71 victory over one of Orlando’s two Summer League squads.
