Game Thread

The Celtics close out their two weeks of Summer League action with a game against the Los Angeles Clippers.  Both teams played last night but Boston played in the late game while LA played at 8:30.  Also, this is the Celtics 10th game in 14 days while the Clippers have just played 5 games over 6 days.  Fatigue could have an impact on the game. 

The Celtics roster was down to 9 players but somehow they added a couple more after the trade in Othello Hunter, previously of the Bobcats, and Garret Stutz, previously of the Timberwolves.  The Clippers have 14 players at their disposal.

Players to watch for the Clippers include 6'11" F/C Hilton Armstrong, who has 5 years of pro experience and will match up with Jared Sullinger at PF.  Armstrong is averaging 7.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game.  Another player to watch is 2 time NBA Champ Adam Morrison who will likely match up with Dionte Christmas.  Morrison is averaging 18.5 points and 4.8 rebounds. 

Celtics players to watch are Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith, both of whom have earned a camp invite, and in the case of Christmas, maybe even a spot in the roster.   Both teams will play hard and try to end their Vegas experience with a win.  This should be another entertaining game. Once again, the game will be televised on both NBA-TV and CSNNE.
