It is interesting to see Boston Celtics dominate the 2017 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. However, the team’s roster is doubtful to overcome Cleveland Cavaliers in the upcoming season after losing several key players.
In this year’s Summer League, Rookie Jayson Tatum showcased his outstanding performance. The number three pick in 2017 NBA Draft shines brighter than the number one and number two picks, Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball from Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers. He overpowered both players in their first NBA games.
In the game against the Lakers on Saturday, July 8, Tatum scored 27 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in an 86-81 victory. Three days later, the 6’8″ small forward dominated the perimeter in the game against the Sixers, posting 15 points and 6 rebounds to bring the Celtics won 88-83. The Celtics continued their winning streak by defeating Golden State Warriors 93-69 on Thursday. After remaining undefeated in four games, Boston Celtics will face Dallas Mavericks next Saturday, July 15.
