NBA-TV, CSNNE
Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, NV
Game Thread

As a testament to the play of the Celtics' team,  the game will be shown live on NBA-TV.  Originally, the schedule was for this game to be shown on tape delay at 3:00 AM.  Instead, they moved this one to be shown live and the Cavs/Timberwolves game has been moved to the 3 AM slot.  Also, for those who get CSNNE, you will have the treat of having the game televised by the Celtics announcers on that channel as well. 

The Celtics will try to keep their unbeaten record in Vegas alive as they face a Kings squad that hasn't had much success this week.  Their only win came against the winless Lakers (why does it feel so good to say those words together? "winless Lakers")    The Kings are playing in their final Vegas team and would love to salvage a 2-3 record for the week.  The Celtics are going to need to play well to win this because the Kings are going to try to end their summer league action on a high note.

An individual matchup to watch in this game is 6'9" Thomas Robinson, who was the 5th pick in the draft, vs the Celtics' first round pick, Jared Sullinger.  Robinson is averaging 14 points and 8 rebounds per game in Summer League while Sully is averaging 10.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.  Should be a fun game to watch.
