In a game that had a little bit of everything, including bad calls by the refs, double technicals, and a half court shot at the buzzer, the Celtics fell to the Bucks 88-87. This was an exciting game with 12 ties and 19 lead changes and it came down to a last second shot by Jared Sullinger that rimmed out at the buzzer. Dionte Christmas solidified his bid for a camp invite with a solid game all the way around. He finished with 17 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 steals. He ran the offense and showed solid decision making.  Let's hope Danny locks this kid up for training camp.  He's earned an invite.  Jared Sullinger had 16 points and 11 rebounds. Kris Joseph, Jamar Smith, and Craig Brackens all played well in this game also. For the Bucks, Harris and Henson both scored 22 points. Christmas showed some toughness when Doron Lamb gave him a little push after a foul and Christmas wasn't having any of it. The pair received double technicals. Olu Ashaolu, who is averaging 2 points a game in SL hit a half court shot that was well defended to end the 3rd quarter. It was a very entertaining game.

To add to the entertainment, Rajon Rondo was in attendance and sat behind the bench. He seemed to be enjoying the game and was seen laughing with Celtics coach Tyronn Lue and the players on the bench. He also signed autographs at halftime. With this loss, the Celtics have dropped to 2-2 in Vegas and 6-3 overall in SL play. They close out their Summer League play Sunday night vs the Clippers at 6:00 PM ET, televised both on CSNNE and NBA-TV.   The Clippers have a 1-3 record and feature 2 time champion Adam Morrison.
