Las Vegas Summer League 2017 game thread: Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics

Winner goes to the semis, loser goes home.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics

WHAT: The Summer Playoffs continue!

WHERE: Thomas & Mack Center (UNLV), Las Vegas, NV

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT


THE STORY: The Summer Mavs continue their impressive run, having not lost a game in either Orlando OR Las Vegas. And none other than Dallas’ first round draft pick — Dennis Smith Jr. — has been carrying the load. Smith has looked impressive leading a squad that features approximately half actual rotation players for the team. He is going to fit nicely into this starting rotation, to be sure.

Tonight the Summer Mavs take on Jayson Tatum and the Summer Celtics, who have also been quite impressive. I was able to watch some of the Celtics squad live in Vegas, and they do have several players who make your head turn. Should be a fun one tonight, Mavs fans, so strap on in.
