LAS VEGAS – Tyler Harvey scored 19 points on 6-of-12 shooting as the Memphis Grizzlies remained unbeaten in NBA Summer League action with a 79-69 win over Phoenix on Tuesday at Thomas and Mack Center.

The former Eastern Washington standout also made five 3-pointers, added three assists, two steals and two rebounds in his third straight start for the Grizzlies (3-0).

Harvey is averaging 13 points per game in Las Vegas after averaging six points in his two games during the Salt Lake City Summer League.

Ex-Gonzaga forward Brandon Clarke added nine points and pulled down eight rebounds – including four offensive boards – in 20 minutes of action for Memphis.

Clarke has started the last two games after missing the opener. Memphis acquired Clarke from Oklahoma City during a NBA draft-day trade. He was selected 21st overall.

James Palmer Jr. paced the Suns (1-1) with 18 points.

The Grizzlies close out pool play Wednesday (7:30 p.m., ESPN2) against the Boston Celtics. Bracket play begins Friday.
