Las Vegas Summer League 2013: Day 10 schedule, TV times, and who to watch


The Las Vegas Summer League has reached the semifinal round with the first, third, fifth and 18th seeds remaining. The surprise Miami Heat (18) will play the Phoenix Suns (4) to open Sunday's action and the Golden State Warriors (1) will face the Charlotte Bobcats (5) in the nightcap.

Miami Heat vs. Phoenix Suns, 6 p.m. ET

Players to watch: Relatively speaking, the Phoenix Suns are one of the most veteran-laden squads that played in Las Vegas. Markieff Morris and twin Marcus Morris are coming off identical shooting performances of 8-for-11 on Saturday, but the Suns' 29th pick in the 2013 draft, Archie Goodwin, has been the more surprising player. Goodwin went 5-for-5 from the floor for 20 points in the quarterfinal win against the Raptors, and he's consistently gotten to the foul stripe with a reckless, attacking style.

The Heat have distributed the points across the board. Jarvis Varnado is coming off a 13-point, 12-rebound performance and 2013 second-round pick James Ennis has consistently punched in double-digit scoring nights as well. Additionally, D-League standout D.J. Kennedy has been solid. He went 3-for-5 from three-point range on Saturday as Miami advanced with an 82-76 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Charlotte Bobcats vs. Golden State Warriors, 8 p.m. ET

Players to watch: The Bobcats earned a fifth seed in the summer league tournament thanks to a loaded starting lineup including 2013 fourth overall pick Cody Zeller, last year's second overall pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, big man Bismack Biyombo and swingman Jeff Taylor. All four rested, but Charlotte managed to beat the D-Leauge select squad on Saturday behind rookie point guard Abdul Gaddy's 17 points.

Golden State advanced past the Los Angeles Lakers' summer league squad on Saturday behind 26 points from guard Kent Bazemore, and Draymond Green put in a double-double despite a poor shooting day. The Warriors, with their strong D-League influence, also saw Santa Cruz Warriors guard Cameron Jones go off for 18 points.
