Andrew Goudelock is playing his way onto an NBA roster next season. The third-year guard out of the College of Charleston poured in 31 points to lead the Bulls to a 93-81 victory over the Denver Nuggets in Las Vegas summer league action.

Goudelock - who scored 26 points in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies - was 10-for-13 from the field and drained five threes-pointers in 29 minutes Monday night. The Bulls (2-0) roster is heavy at guard, but he could earn an invite to training camp if another team doesn't offer a guaranteed contract.

Forward Malcolm Thomas continued his summer league dominance with a double-double, scoring 13 points and tying a summer league record with 22 rebounds.

Marquis Teague shook off an early injury and returned to the game, dropping 15 points and dishing out seven assists. The second-year guard displayed an improved jumper (6-for-12 from the field) and was aggressive in the second half.

After a dismal shooting performance against the Grizzlies, second-round pick Erik Murphy (18 points) bounced back, hitting four three-pointers.

Tony Snell (11 points) showcased his ability to get to the basket and draw the foul despite a rough night from the field. He was 7-for-9 from the charity stripe in the Bulls' win.

Evan Fournier lead the Nuggets (0-2) in scoring with 20 points and Luke Harangody - who was originally scheduled to play for the Bulls in summer league action - had 17 points off the bench to go along with seven rebounds.

The Bulls square off with the Trail Blazers (0-2) Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. in the final game before the tournament portion of Las Vegas summer league play.
