Player to Watch

Mike Moser
Moser has played very well so far for the Celtics in Summer League, averaging 13.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in the 4 games.  It will be interesting to see how he closes out and if the Celtics will offer him a training camp invite going forward.

Player to Watch

Willie Reed took over the game the last time these two teams met posting 18 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 blocks to help the Pacers dominate the Celtics.   It will be interesting to see if he can duplicate that feat in this game. 

Key Matchup
vs
Marcus Smart vs Donald Sloan
While Smart is a rookie, Sloan appeared in 48 games for the Pacers last season.   The 6'3" Sloan is averaging 18 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists in Summer League play.  Smart started off slowly but has improved each game that he has played and would love to close out Summer League on a high note. 

Game Notes
The Celtics finished 4th in the standings while the Pacers finished 3rd.  Both teams had 3-1 records but the Pacers earned more points during the week than the Celtics.  This matchup will give the Celtics a chance to avenge their only loss in Summer League play. 

 While Summer League is mostly for evaluating players, I'm sure the Celtics will be trying hard for the win in this game in order to beat the team that embarrassed them 96-77 in their first meeting. 

The Celtics had gotten out to an 18 point lead in the first game between these two teams but then they seemed to collapse and couldn't score and their defense also let up.  Regardless of who is on the court,  they need to play hard the entire game.  It would ge nice to avenge their only loss and close out Summer League with a win.

right. when i saw the first SL one a few days ago i thought "yes, the season is getting closer." these game threads are almost like the robins in spring, announcing good times are near.

p.s. flc, so far my favorite little "team souvenir" pix at the top were the two little stuffed rhinos with masks. those were really cute.

I am just glad we didn't get Exum!   Boy is he tearing it up in FIBA.  No wonder they hid him.
