The Summer League Boston Celtics are undefeated, people! As in, no losses!They have won while controlling a game for four quarters, and they have won with a desperate comeback led by a 6-foot-1 point guard (Jonathan Gibson) who played for a Turkish team called “Trabzonspor” last season. They have won with Jared Sullinger tossing bricks at the rim and they have won with him controlling the paint. They have won with E’Twaun Moore controlling the tempo, and, well, he has moderated the pace in each of the Celtics’ three summer league games to date, so they haven’t won any other way so far.Boston outlasted Indiana on Wednesday, 85-77.Without further ado, player-by-player analysis:E’Twaun MooreHe doesn’t have to dominate to impress. He doesn’t have to rack up assists to prove himself as a capable point guard. Moore hit five of his first seven shots and finished with 15 points, four rebounds and three assists for the afternoon. His most impressive moments don’t necessarily come in highli...

Post your thoughts on the Celtics Summer League performance

I haven't been able to watch all the games myself, so I don't feel that comfortable posting evaluations on all of the players. But from what I've seen so far I've been impressed by a few guys. I'd predicted that Jared Sullinger would be a rotation player for the Celtics in his rookie season and his play this week only reinforces that prediction. He's a baller...

Boston Celtics Summer League observations, Day 2: The rise of Jonathan Gibson
