Heat, Blazers meet in semis

Staff, news services

Two weeks of NBA Summer League play in three different cities has been enough for teams to hold out many marquee players, though there was plenty of intensity on the floor Saturday in the quarterfinal round of tournament play in Las Vegas.

The losers go home instead of the semifinal round today.

Wayne Selden scored 24 points and led the Memphis Grizzlies to a 98-95 double-overtime victory over the Miami Heat. 

Gian Clavell, who finished with 20 points, hit a 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left in regulation to force overtime, but the Heat managed just five total points in the two extra periods.

Selden hit a pair of free throws to force the second overtime, and Wade Baldwin hit two more after rebounding his own missed free throw to go up 97-94 with 16.6 seconds left. Clavell missed a 3-pointer to tie just before the final buzzer.
