Welcome to the Summer League, Dion Waiters. Ok, there was still plenty to critique, but Dion Waiters displayed a set of impressive moves with dribble penetration as his 16 points help lead the Cavs Summer League team past the Phoenix Suns 89-74 in their third summer league game. Samardo Samuels turned in another strong performance with 17 points, including a perfect 9-0f-9 from the free throw line. Tyler Zeller posted a double-double with 10 points and 12 boards, while Donald Sloan added 13 points of his own. The Cavaliers next face the Minnesota Timberwolves Thursday night.
