Prior to Monday's Las Vegas Summer League title game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Memphis Grizzlies rookie Brandon Clarke collected the tournament's MVP award. Then he went out and got the rest of the summer league's hardware.

Clarke scored 15 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, dished out four assists, and blocked three shots as the Grizz topped the T-Wolves 95-92. The 21st pick in June's draft was promptly named championship game MVP. The Canadian averaged 14.8 points and 12.3 rebounds in six games in Vegas.

Former Utah Jazz forward Grayson Allen added 17 points for Memphis, while Bruno Caboclo - entering his sixth NBA season - scored 15 on 3-of-8 shooting from deep.

The tournament was also an auspicious debut for new Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins, who guided his summer squad to a 6-1 record and the title.
