Boston Celtics (0-0) vs Philadelphia 76ers (0-0)
Monday, July 3, 2017
7:00 PM ET
TV: NBA-TV, CSNNE, CSN
Jon Huntsman Center



Celtics Summer League Roster
Kadeem Allen
Rosco Allen
Jabari Bird
Jaylen Brown
Perrin Buford
Demetrius JKackson
Landen Lucas
Abdel Nader
Semi Ojeleye
Terran Petteway
Scoochie Smith
Jayson Tatum
Trevor Thompson
Scott Wood
 Ante Zizic

Players to Watch

Jayson Tatum - The Celtics first round pick, #3 overall, will have the spotlight on him throughout the season, beginning with this game. 
Abdel Nader - Nader, the 58th pick in last year's draft played last season with the Red Claws and was named D-League Rookie of the Year.  Can he impress enough to make the team this season?
Semi Ojeleye - Ojeleye was projected to be drafted in the 20's but slid to the Celtics at 37.  He is an exciting player and he may make the team if he impresses enough in Summer League.
Ante Zizic - The Celtics drafted Zizic 23rd in 2016.  He impressed this past season playing for David Blatt with Darüşşafaka Doğuş.  Celtics fans are hoping to see him in Boston this season and that will begin with a strong showing in Summer League. 




Sixers Summer League Roster
Brandon Austin
Jonah Bolden
James Blackmon, Jr
Isaiah Bricoe
Larry Drew III
Markelle Fultz
Aaron Harrison
Charles Jackson
Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot
Isaiah Miles
Alex Poythress
Darryl Reynolds
Kaleb Tarczewski
Melo Trimble

Players to Watch

Markelle Fultz - Fultz was the number 1 overall pick and the Celtics traded the right to draft him to the Sixers.  Celtics fans will be watching his play all season to see what they missed out on. 
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 as well. 
Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot - Caberrot was the Sixers 2016 first round pick, 24th overall.  He played very well down the stretch for the Sixers last season and they are looking for him to pick up where he left off last season. 

Key Matchup
vs
Jayson Tatum vs Markelle Fultz
The Celtics finally had the #1 overall pick in the 2017 draft.  Markelle Fultz was projected by just about everyone to be the top pick but Danny was more impressed with Jayson Tatum and so traded the #1 pick to Philly for the #3 pick so as to take Tatum.  Throughout their careers, these two players will be scrutinized and compared with each other as the aftermath of this trade is debated by fans and critics alike. 

Keys to the Game
Chemistry - Both teams will have new players who more than likely won't make the team mixed with players expected to contribute this season.  Developing chemistry quickly will be a key for both teams.
Defense - Regular season or Summer League, defense is always a key to winning. 
Poise - More than likely both teams will be a bit nervous as they take the court for the first time.  The Celtics have the more experienced team and so hopefully they will be more poised and the nerves won't affect them as much.

FLC -- You kind of messed up Tatum's first name in the players to watch section.

Great job, FLCelts, on many lesser known/unknown players.

The Blackmon kid is not related to Rolando Blackmon, but his dad did play in the NBA.

I am so stoked to see our guys, but ABDEL NADER could shock the world.

Wonder if Kadeem Allen will be guarding Markelle Fultz.

Jonathan Isaac has looked pretty good for Orlando so far, 22pts , 21 reb, 3 blk in 43 minutes from 2 games.

Orlando's team also coincidentally features 3 former Red Claws - Jalen jones, Levi Randolph, and Marcus Georges-Hunt.
