NBA Summer League

Nuggets find gem in Welch

John Welch believes he’s had a blessed life in basketball. … When your career has been touched by Jerry Tarkanian, Jerry West, Hubie Brown and Tim Grgurich among others, that is indeed a blessing. … Welch, a former Rancho High School star who played first at UNR, then UNLV, is enjoying coaching at the highest level on George Karl’s staff with the Denver Nuggets.

At 7 feet 3 inches, Hasheem Thabeet is menacing enough without the Mohawk that he has been sporting during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Griffin aces summer school test

Blake Griffin, the No. 1 pick in last month’s NBA Draft, scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in 30 minutes to lead the Los Angeles Clippers past their crosstown rivals, the Lakers, 93-82 in the NBA Summer League at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Taylor Griffin struggles

Big brother appears to have set the bar pretty low for little brother as Taylor Griffin’s first taste of NBA life wasn’t much to brag about. He had just four points and two rebounds for Phoenix as the Suns defeated Dallas, 95-90 in Cox Pavilion.
