Man, Josh Selby is playing some killer basketball right now. After a Summer League-high 35 points against the Wizards on Tuesday, Selby followed it up with a 32-point showing against the Bobcats, in the Grizzlies 97-79 win.

Selby yet again showed great range, hitting 7-of-11 three-pointers. Just. Straight. Balling.

If you're looking to criticize Selby for anything -- please don't, but if you must... -- he obviously is working on his jumper, but he still has only 4 assists in the team's first 3 Summer League games. I know, I know, I'm picking here, but for a guy who was supposed to be a backup point guard? OK, shut up, Tom.

Selby has been fantastic and he's making the case for being our new O.J. Mayo off the bench. Oh, I know, it's Summer League, but... Selby is on fire.

As for the rest of the team, Tony Wroten struggled again with his shot, hitting just 3-of-9 FGs. He did, though dish 8 assists. The problem.... 4 turnovers. He needs to keep his game contained, and slow down a little out there -- at times. But that will come in time. Right, Mike Conley?

Again, we can't get too wrapped up in performances, just moments, and the takeaways here are the Selby's jumper is FALLING and Wroten seems to be getting his play-maker on. Still, lots of work to do for both Selby and Wroten.

#TeamSelby!
