Jayson Tatum - The Celtics first round pick, #3 overall, will continue to have the spotlight on him throughout his first Summer League. In Utah, Tatum averaged 18.7 points on 46.8% shooting along with 9.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.3 steals.  He starred once again against the Lakers with 27 points and 11 rebounds and against the Blazers with 11 points and 7 rebounds. 
Demetrius Jackson -  After sitting out the final two games in Utah, Jackson was back on the court against the Lakers.  He finished with 6 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.  Most importantly,  the Celtics are 3-0 with Jackson and 0-2 without him. 
Jaylen Brown - Jaylen was a man among boys in his first game against the Sixers with 29 points and 13 rebounds.  He has come down to earth somewhat since then, though but has still played well.  Against the Lakers he had 11 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.  Against the Blazers he had 13 points and 8 rebounds and the dunk of game. 
Semi Ojeleye - Ojeleye was projected to be drafted in the 20's but slid to the Celtics at 37.  He struggled somewhat in Utah, but came on strong in his first game in Vegas with 19 points including 5-9 from beyond the arc with 3 rebounds.  He played well once again vs the Blazers with 9 points and 5 rebounds.

Possible Starting Lineup

Injuries

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (upper lip laceration)  out

Players to Watch
(http://a.espncdn.com/i/nba/draft2016/headshots/20221.jpg)(https://usathoopshype.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/i_aa_56_43_isaiah-miles.jpg?w=65)(https://usathoopshype.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/wpid-i_ac_3f_1b_aaron_harrison.jpg?w=65)(https://www.spotrac.com/assets/headshots/nba/20970.png)
Furkan Korkmaz - Korkmaz was taken with the 26th pick in the 2016 draft and was stashed in Turkey last season.  He is now in Vegas trying to impress the Sixers brass for a spot on the team this season.  He finished against the Spurs with 12 points and 4 rebounds. 
Isaiah Miles - Miles played last season in France and is hoping to make an impression on the Sixers or other NBA team in Summer League.  He has a contract to play in Turkey next season but has a clause that would allow him to opt out should he get a contract from a team in the NBA.  Miles averaged 14.0 points on 73.3 percent shooting in two Utah Summer League games.  Against the Spurs he had 10 points and 3 rebounds. 
Aaron Harrison - Harrison went undrafted in 2015 and has played with the Hornets and several D-League teams since then.  He finished with 14 points and 3 rebounds against the Spurs.
Jonah Bolden - Bolden, an Australian, was taken with the 36th pick in this year's draft, one spot before the Celtics drafted Semi Ojeleye.  It will be interesting to watch the progress of these two players along with the progress of their teammates, Markelle Fultz and Jayson Tatum.  Bolden had a big game against the Celtics in Utah and finished with 7 points and 3 rebounds against the Spurs. 

Game Notes
The Celtics got a win over the Sixers in their first game in Utah as Jayson Tatum hit the game winner in the final seconds.  The Sixers would love to win the rematch but will have to do it without their star, the number one pick in the draft, Markelle Fultz.  They will also be without their promising second year player Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot.

Abdel Nader, the Celtics promising pick from 2016 who was the D-League Rookie of the Year last season, missed Sunday's game against the Blazers and could be out again this game.  Ante Zizic has looked more comfortable with each game and could make a difference for the Celtics. 

Also looking more and more comfortable is Jayson Tatum.  He has been the best player of the Summer League so far and is making Danny's choice of trading away the chance to draft Fultz.  We won't see another head to head matchup between the two but Jayson has another chance to show that he's the top Rookie in this class. 

This is the final scheduled game for the Celtics in Vegas.  From this point, the teams will go into a playoff format leading to a Vegas Summer League champion at the end of the week.  On Wednesday, seeds 9-24 will play in 8 games and on Thursday, seeds 1-8 will play against the winners of Wednesday's games. 

 On Friday, losers from games on July 12th and July 13th will play and on Saturday, winners from games on July 14th will play.  On Sunday, winners from games on July 15th will play.  On Monday, winners from games on July 16 will play in the championship game. 

Keys to the Game
Chemistry - Both of these teams have been together for long enough to begin building chemistry as a team.  Injuries have slowed the Sixers down some but they still have enough players who have played well together that the Celtics need to come in ready to play.
Defense -  Defense is always a key to winning, whether in Summer League, regular season or especially in the playoffs.  The Celtics need to play tough defense to give themselves a chance to win. 
Point Guard Play -  The Celtics play much better with Jackson playing the point.  Hopefully he will play again in this game and give the offense a boost. 
7-11 - The Celtics need their dynamic duo to play well.  Tatum has played very well in every game so far.  Brown started off strong and then has come down to earth a bit in the last two games he played in.  Hopefully he comes on strong again in this game. 
Resting Players - Coaches in Summer League tend to rest players from time to time as they don't want to take a chance on an injury due to a fatigued player.  Key players resting may affect the play of either or both teams.

Zizic hasn't been overly impressive, but he is big, tough, and a rebounder. He gets his hands on a ton of balls, especially on the offensive end.

Zizic is decent

he is just out of shape to me ....he is breathing too hard.  he also doesnt have an effecient movement , he wastes energy on bad plays

other words he needs to pick his battles ,  where KO barely tried to rebound , Zizic goes after TOO many ..LOL

I don't mind that lineup. It's summer league - you should be putting our guys in to uncomfortable situations and making Jaylen and Tatum handle more

Exactly what I thought. When he plays within the game, he is borderline unstoppable in summer league. I don't mind seeing him push himself in the meaningless summer league, but if he plays basically how he has today during the year, he will be a very valuable starter for us.

me too...

Personally don't think Tatum will play as many min smart nor brown did their rookie years

Tatum needs to add 25-30 pounds of mass (up to 240).  If he can't get by his man right now (skinny state),  than next best thing would be to add mass and power his way in .....

He needs this and to keep improving his spot up 3 pt shooting without sacrificing the things he can do already on the offensive/defensive end

He has a lot of other areas for improvement on both ends. He needs to diversify his offensive game, get better on defense, clean up little mistakes, get smarter, etc. He is a 19 year old rookie after all.

What is Mark Jackson talking about?
He trying to promote the WNBA. He saying that if you take the 2 all time great WNBA players, and put them against Coach Thibs and JVG, then the WNBA players would win.

Tatum shot blocked
not overly impressed by his ability to finish around the basekt
Disagree, he's got a great 1st step and then uses his length. What he cannot do yet is use more upfakes on the drive to create space.

not sure...  why isn't he resorting to beating his man off the dribble and slashing to the basket more then

He does this immediately as I am watching and just scored.

He can go to the rim.  He is a guy who will work all his moves off of his jump shot so expect him to shoot jump shots.  Don't be surprised.

The ball security is the one issue I really have right now.  But he will improve.  They need to work on him keeping the ball up.  In Euro basketball you are not allowed to be as active with your hands in certain situations around the rim so I think he needs to adjust.  Some guys never had good hands though so we will see.

It is fun to comment on non-stars sometimes. Everyone else says something about Tatum and Brown a lot. So, I picked zizic to pay attention to.

Plus, the absurd condemnation and criticisms of zizic after two games was so over the top that it made me pay more attention to him.

Don't get worried triboy, I won't make him into my Mickey.  ;D

Interesting game.  When Brown went down the team began to fall apart, but Jackson and Bird stepped up nicely.

As excited as we all are for Tatum, you could see some areas he needs to work on.  He needs to diversify his offensive game, right now he uses mostly the mid-range shot and can only mix in the drive and stretch to the cup with his length.  His 3-point shot is not there yet.  He has work to do on defense.  He got winded due to major minutes and many games in one week, but that is easily fixable.  Clearly he needs to add 15-20 lbs of muscle.  I am no less enthusiastic for his future, but he is a 19-year-old rookie.

Zizic looked better but geez those hands, awful.  Game is still too quick for him.

Semi Ojeleye is starting to come into his own with the shot and some decent play.

Intrigued by Lucas as a big.  Need to see more.

Jabari Bird making his case for the team.

Zizic was impressive tonight. Good stuff. Hope it continues.

13 rebounds! He was grabbing rebounds that guys last year could not get. Very happy with his rebounding and toughness inside.

Jackson sucks. How can you throw should a terrible entry pass to the post from that distance at his stage in his development?

That was like a foot too high...

Too many pro guards out there can't pass into the post now. 

Even him thinking that was a good angle...

I agree though.
Is that the pass where Zizic was going to get triple-teamed on the catch if the ball were anywhere close to him?

Let's just face it: Jackson is not an NBA player.

Yeah pretty much, plus it was from the top of the key right to the block which is basically never ever the angle where you make that pass from if you know what you're doing.

Reminded me of playing C in high school lol.

Good to see Ante getting it.

Bird has played well and is more efficient than guys like Nader.   I think he has earned a two way contract, he can  shoot and is bouncy.

Semi has improved a lot since the first game.

Tatum continues to impress.

More like a sledgehammer by Ojeleye

Semi is huge!

Would you say he's built like a.... semi?  ;)

Be surprised if he's not on the roster

Brad Stevens called Semi Ojeleye's defensive flexibility "enormous." Believes rookie will be one of Cs better defenders right away.

Tatum was good in spurts, but had some really, really bad reads. Seems to like the pull-up jumper an awful lot, and didn't look great in isolation when they cleared out the side and gave the play time to develop.

I only saw parts of the other games, so perhaps he had a bad night?

Nope, I did not.   I did not miss all the blocked drives.

I saw him double teamed some.   He looked to me like he is wearing down and is tired.   He is hitting the SL wall.

Yeah, he was tired, especially in the 2nd half where the ball was hitting the front rim, but the larger point is he still has a ways to go, lots of little things to learn on offense and defense too.  Still, you can see the greatness.  This is going to take some time.
