Jordan Hamilton had game highs of 23 points and one loss of shorts in the Nuggets' 87-82 victory over the Pelicans in the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday.

"Hopefully you guys don't put me 'not top 10,'" Hamilton told NBA TV's Craig Sager afterward, perhaps referring to a staple of ESPN's SportsCenter. "But, yeah, it was funny."

The play came during a first quarter in which the 22-year-old swingman scored 18 points. Hamilton, the 26th pick in the 2011 draft, led the Nuggets to their first win in four games.
