LAS VEGAS--Ray-Ray Parks had his best game in the 2015 NBA Summer League as Dallas rolled to a 104-88 victory over a team composed of D-League players at the Cox Pavilion on Friday (Philippine Time).

Parks had ten points, making three field goals, five rebounds, one assist, and a game-high four steals in 21 minutes of play as he and Maalik Wayns took turns in stepping up for Jordan Crawford, who had a quiet three points in a starting role for the Mavs.

Parks, who only made splits from the line in the other occasions he scored in the tournament, converted all of his four free throws this time.

Dallas lorded it over the D-League selection beginning late in the second quarter and pulled away for good for its second straight win and a spot in the quarterfinals.

Justin Anderson led the Mavericks with 23 points, five rebounds, and one assist, while Wayns and Dwight Powell each added 22.

Justin Dentmon scorched for 31 points on six triples and a perfect 9-of-9 free throw clip in a losing effort for the D-Leaguers.
