Preview of the 3rd day of the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas!

With seven games last night, the Las Vegas Summer League gave us some pretty cool things. Tonight is Saturday night, so we’re into eight summer basketball games. First good news? There will be a Thunder – Rocket and therefore a first sports interview between Chet Holmgren and Jabari Smith Jr. Second good news? The first match begins at 9:30 p.m., at the same time as the ignition of your barbecue.

Tonight’s program:

  • 9:30 p.m.: Raptors – Sixers
  • 10 p.m.: Magic – Kings
  • 11:30 p.m .: Celtics – Heat
  • 0h: Pistons – Wizards
  • 1h30: Hawks – Jazz
  • 2 a.m.: Thunder – Rockets
  • 3:30 am: Clippers – Grizzlies
  • 4 a.m.: Pelicans – Blazers

Early evening at 9:30 p.m., we hope that the chips and other sweets will be out by the pool. Of course, it’s at your own risk if you choose to bring back the TV, but maybe it’s worth the effort. In any case, it is in particular Julian and Justin Champagnie who will open the ball at the Summer League in Las Vegas. The two brothers are there, but one plays for the Sixers and the other for the Raptors. In any case, it promises a well-watered match, almost as much as your TV after friend Manu sent a big family bomb into the pool. Note the presence of Rodion Kurucs, ex-Nets player. In short, the perfect little game well pépouze to put in the mood before the sequel… and that’s good, because we welcome one of the most prominent players of this beginning of summer just after. With the Kings, Keegan Murray – number 4 in the last Draft – impressed at the California Classic, San Francisco’s summer league. In front of him, nothing less than the first selected of the cuvée aka Paolo Banchero. The maximum regalade is planned for a little later, but we will revel properly in the meantime. If the two rookies don’t play in the same position, we risk having a match within the match, and that’s all good. Come on, two more ‘tits games before attacking the second part of the evening. On one side, Celtics – Heat. We are on the remake of the Eastern Conference Finals, but without the same players. There is no doubt that everyone will be keen to imitate the holders all year round, starting with Nikola Jovic (Miami) who will join them next October. From the rookie, there will finally be two interesting ones at the Pistons, facing the Wizards. Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren will try to observe the beginnings of a two-man game, well supported by the Frenchman Killian Hayes.

At 1:30 a.m., it’s time to get the ice cream out. Are you more of a cone, stick or spoon directly into the jar? You will have to make your choice quickly on the taste too, and here we are a fan of chocolate and strawberries if you want a little help. Come on, we’re leaving with the Hawks against the Jazz, a friendly opposition that will give us the opportunity to observe AJ Griffin. He will notably be accompanied by two Frenchies, Joel Ayayi and Alpha Kaba. On the Utah side, it will be impossible to miss Tacko Fall but also interesting to see Johnny Juzang play, the undrafted leader of UCLA this season in college. Boom, it’s FINALLY time for the main event. Which is why you forced your soccer buddies to stay awake, though in the heat it’s nice to stay outside even in the middle of the night. The two guys they absolutely must see? Chet Holmgren and Jabari Smith Jr. The first pretended to have a superb Summer League in Utah, when the other sent a very correct first game while remaining a little behind against an already very comfortable Paolo Banchero. You see the picture, it’s exciting and as usual the score doesn’t matter, we just want to see the two jokers give it to each other. It’s going to send the block, and the match that follows will certainly be less interesting since it opposes Clippers and Grizzlies, but the mere presence of Kenneth Lofton Jr makes the thing immediately cool to watch. The papo will still clean the paint, safety helmet required for access. There’s also a guy from Memphis called Ronaldo who plays number 9, if ever. Last opposition of the evening, Blazers – Pelicans. The brave in front will probably be counted on the fingers of one hand, so we won’t say too much except that Shadeon Sharpe was injured and he won’t be there. Go zou, to sleep.

Eight games, eight opportunities to watch a little basketball and above all a great opportunity to do it outside while enjoying the good weather. Of course, if we can advise you on a match of this day of Summer League in particular, it is that between Chet Holmgren and Jabari Smith Jr. Don’t forget the coffee if you follow us!
