The duo that has connected on so many plays from high school in Niagara Falls through college at Syracuse University is keeping it going in the NBA.

Jonny Flynn was 2-3 from beyond three point land while scoring 11 in the Minnesota Timberwolves 79-65 loss to the Houston Rockets in the first summer league game of the season. He also dished out 7 assists, two of which resulted in buckets for Paul Harris. Those 7 assists however were dampened by 7 turnovers.

Harris was 1-2 from beyond the arc, and also slammed home a beautiful set up pass from Flynn on the fast break. Flynn played just over 28 minutes out of a possible 40, while Harris saw just over 8 minutes of action.

Also of local interest, Daryl Watkins logged four minutes for the Rockets, scoring two points.
