Celtics Summer League Game 2 Notes

The Summer League Celtics continued to impress dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers, 89-72. From the opening tip the Celtics were the aggressors and never let their foot off the gas pedal. The tone setter was LSU guard Tremont Waters put on an absolute show to start dishing out a crazy between the legs pass to Chinanu Onuaku for a dunk and showing off his off the dribble step-back moves compensating for his 5 foot, 9 inch stature and acting as an absolute pest on defense.

Waters finished with 11 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals.

Tacko Fall continues to make his case he is deserving of a roster spot on the professional Celtics squad. The 7 foot, 7 inch  descendent from Dakar scored 12 points towering over his competition snagging only two rebounds but putting the ball back in the basket so effortlessly. I was taken aback by his right-block shimmy hook shot, surprisingly Falls has above-average touch around the rim. On defense Falls resembles the Berlin Wall. The Cavaliers tried posting him up and the guards tried to maneuver around him only to pass out.

I know it’s Summer League but Fall is incredibly fun to watch and more importantly resembles a real NBA player. Which is more than I can say for Guerschon Yabusele who made just one field goal in the contest. He deserves credit for playing through a dislocated pinky finger. You can’t say Yabusele does not want to make it. I am doubting he athletically can.

Carsen Edwards notched 14 points off of ten shots getting the most of his production from around the basket showcasing his supreme ability to finish around the basket. His dribbling is excellent and out of this draft class the Celtics have brought in Edwards looks the most ready for showtime.

Robert Williams played another solid game scoring 10 points and dribbling down the floor for a transition attempt. I honestly didn’t know he could dribble for this long. He ultimately failed to finish the possession, but yet another eye opener.

Lastly, Grant Williams began the night slow converting on just one of his four field goal. Williams has a real scorers mentality and is a plus-41 in his first two Summer League games. Williams effectively used his on a bigger player to force a shot clock violation.

Williams scores 5 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and a block.
