Sunday, July 15, 2018
8:00 PM ET
Las Vegas Summer League Game #6
Playoff Quarterfinals
TV:  ESPN 2
Place: Thomas and Mack Center
Las Vegas, Nevada



Boston Celtics Roster
Kadeem Allen
Justin Bibbs
Jabari Bird
Demitrius Conger
Trey Davis
Daniel Dixon
Jarell Eddie
Pierria Henry
Hassan Martin
Semi Ojeleye
Jarrod Uthoff
Robert Williams III
Guerschon Yabusele

Players to Watch


Jabari Bird is playing for a spot on the Celtics this year after playing as a two way player last season.  The Celtics will likely release Kadeem Allen, the Celtics other two way player from last season, but a decision hasn't been made on Bird as of yet.   He has looked good in Summer League so far, averaging 16.8 points, 3.0 assists and 6.0 rebounds. He didn't play in Saturday's game against the Heat. 
Semi Ojeleye is working hard this off season to improve his game, especially on the offensive end.  He is already a lock down defender and should be a rotation player this season.  He is averaging 13.3 points, 2.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds so far in Summer League. He had 9 points and 4 rebounds against the Heat. 
Guerschon Yabusele, in spite of being a fan favorite, is playing to show he belongs on the Celtics.  He is averaging 12.3 points, 2.0 assists and 5.3 rebounds.  He had 12 points and 10 rebounds vs the Heat on Saturday. 
Pierria Henry has played in Europe since he went undrafted in 2015.  He has offers to play in Europe next season if he can't find a spot in the NBA.  He is averaging 9.0 points 4.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds in Vegas so far.  He led the Celtics against the Heat with 15 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds. 



Portland Trailblazers Roster
Wade Baldwin IV
Zach Collins
Archie Goodwin
John Jenkins
Jake Layman
KJ McDaniels
Mikyle McIntosh
Langston Morris-Walker
Georgios Papagiannis
Anfernee Simons
Caleb Swanigan
Gary Trent Jr
Casper Ware

Players to Watch

Jake Layman was the 47th pick in the 2016 draft.  He played 35 games in each of the past 2 seasons with the Blazers and is playing in his 3rd Summer League.  He is averaging 18 points, 0.3 assists and 5.8 rebounds. 
Wade Baldwin IV was the 17th pick in the 2016 draft.  He played on a 2 way contract for Portland last season.  He is averaging 14.5 points, 8.0 assists and 4.8 rebounds. 
Gary Trent Jr was the 37th pick in this year's draft.  He signed a 3 year deal with the Blazers.  He is averaging 13.5 points, 1.3 assists, and 3.5 rebounds. 
Anfernee Simons was the 24th pick in this year's draft.  He was the 3rd high school player drafted since 2015 with Thon Maker and Satnam Singh being the other two.  He is named after Anfernee Hardaway  as his parents were big Magic fans.  He is averaging 12.0 points, 0.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds.  He scored 20 points in the Blazers' last game vs the Hawks. 

The Celtics advanced to the quarterfinals with a 2 point win over the Heat in the second round, earning a 6th game in this year's Summer League play.  The Trailblazers were seeded 2nd going into the tournament and had a bye in the first round and beat the Hawks 95-69 to advance to the quarterfinals. 

Robert Williams hasn't played since the first quarter of game 1 when he bumped knees with someone.  He has been anxious to get back on the court but the medical staff is being very cautious and have kept him out so far.  He is listed as day to day.  The Trailblazers don't have any injuries listed.  At this point in Summer League, especially playing back to back both teams may choose to sit players for rest. 

As with the game vs the Heat, this is a win or go home game in the tournament.  If the Celtics lose, they are finished with Summer League play.  If they win,  they will go on to play on Monday at 10:30 PM ET and the Finals will be on Tuesday at 10:00 PM ET.

Seventh, rotation player.

I am starting to wonder why I watch, given that I don't expect to see RW3.

Things to look for:
1) more consistent jumper from Semi.
2) see #1.
