Nuggets! Rockets! Overtime!

The Nuggets and Rockets were the nightcap.  Both teams featured the most D-League talent at the Summer League.  Both teams played terrific, and it's been an absolutely great game.

Dorsey has looked like an absolute beast, though most of his buckets have come off his guards ability to create open looks for him.  Donte Green is legit. Heavily, heavily legit. 

Down by one late in overtime, Elton Brown topped in a bucket off balance, drawing the foul for the and one opportunity. Brown, who finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds to continue his strong week at the D-League, knocked down the free throw to put the Nuggets up by 2.  But Aaron Brooks answered with a layup and a  touch foul by Keith Langford to put the Rockets back in control.  But with five seconds left, Dahntay Jones drove to the basket and banked in a runner to seal the game for Denver in a 105-104 victory.

The D-League works, people.
