The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers will clash in the 2021 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Both teams enter this game undefeated. The Celtics have defeated the Atlanta Hawks, Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic. The Sixers have beaten the Dallas Mavericks and Hawks.
Payton Pritchard recently left the Celtics' Summer League team, but there are still plenty of exciting players to watch in this game. One of them is 2020 first-round draft pick Aaron Nesmith, who has been red-hot from 3-point range in Las Vegas. Another is undrafted forward Sam Hauser, who hit six 3-point shots in Thursday's victory over the Magic. Yam Madar also should get more minutes with Pritchard gone.
The Sixers will not have 2020 first-round pick Tyrese Maxey, who scored 31 points in a win against the Hawks on Thursday night. He left the team to take part in a basketball camp, per Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer:
