NBA Summer League Final Score: Cavaliers fall to Heat 82-74, Scoop Jardine reigns supreme

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

The Cavaliers were downed by the Miami Heat in a game that actually occurred on a basketball court. Other than that, I don't have a ton of details. However, I do have a gift for all of the Scoop Jardine fans out there.

Well, basketball happened on this day at the Thomas and Mack Center. But it was made largely irrelevant prior to the game due to both Dion Waiters' and Tyler Zeller's absence. So instead of doing our job and trudging through the basketball, media row decided to play a Scoop Jardine-related pun game. Here are some of the best ones.

Oh yeah, since you probably care a little bit about the game, here are some facts. The Heat won 82-74. Cleveland basically trailed the entire game but then made it close at the end with a big run that ultimately came up short. Cory Higgins played really well and had 17 points. Justin Harper didn't play well in the first half, but really picked it up in the second and ended up with 21 points. Matthew Dellavedova struggled when put under pressure after he passed half court, which really scares me as far as his NBA prospects are concerned. Then, to top off the summer league, Jermaine Taylor got to throw down a thunderous dunk with eight seconds left and then a lay-in to get up to 20 points.

Even though everyone is assuredly upset the Cavaliers and Dan GIlbert aren't bringing a summer league championship to Cleveland possibly before Miami does, I hope you can rejoice in the punability of Scoop Jardine's name. Enjoy!
