Strus just jacking it up. Don't need that. Like the way Grant waited and drew the double-team before passing out. Continues to show his smarts.

First unit looked sluggish, no one was cutting, and TimeLord's screens were not inspiring Waters to use them.

The second Edwards comes in the floor opens right up. And Tacko's screens look better right now.

Damn, I know it's been said about 8 times in this thread, but gotta say it again: Watching this summer league Celtics team is a blast. They're good, and they play like a team (mostly). I've been watching summer league for a few years and don't remember a team anything like this one.

Not sure if it's the same announcer who was talking about it last game, but I don't understand how anyone can think the Celtics would be looking to trade Williams right now, it makes absolutely no sense unless someone completely blew them away with an offer.

Had the same thought. It's Dakich running his mouth again.

Some bad basketball right now - passing up open 3s to take contested 2s, bad passing, poor defense etc...

Williams is going to be a Gahden favorite if fairly short order. Its not always obvious but he just puts himself in the right position way more often than most rookies or even guys who have a few NBA seasons under their belt.

about the only thing that is right and good about this game is the crowd's reflexive booing of Grayson Allen.

Yeah, I wish he'd shut up about the "I would inquire about him." Like the Celtics are looking to sell all their assets. Unh unh.

TL’s passing is no joke.

The announcer is obviously a moron—what do you even trade a one year mostly unproven high upside player with no salary for? A mid round pick? Word vomit.

If the Celts were even shooting 33% from 3, the game would be tied. They have a good shot of winning this.

Well, his premise issues is that someone could use him...

Why he doesn’t think that team might be the Celtics remains elusive.
It's seems to be something along the lines of "they have lots of centers." The fact that those centers are all journeymen and backups doesn't really seem to enter into things.

I'm sort of enjoying the "must trade TL" subplot now--it's just bizarre.

Hard to see Strus surviving on the defensive end in the NBA.

EDIT: And he gives up another basket.

SECOND EDIT: And he gives up another basket.

I hope this Williams getting blocked inside twice isn't a preview of coming attractions. I like him a lot, but he might have to work on different shots.
