Grizzlies' Mayo hits 69-footer in summer league

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Rookie O.J. Mayo of the Memphis Grizzlies made the most spectacular shot of his career Monday night at the NBA Summer League.

Mayo converted a desperation three-quarters court shot from 69 feet to beat the first-quarter buzzer against San Antonio. Mayo, who shot it with both hands from straight away, rattled it through the rim.

Mayo, the highest draft pick playing at the 21-team Summer League, finished with 18 points on just 5-of-17 shooting from the field in a 78-76 loss to the Spurs. Mayo was 6-for-6 from the free-throw line and had six rebounds.

The Grizzlies and Mayo were playing their fourth game in four days, while the Spurs were making their debut in the their four-game Las Vegas visit.
