Boston Celtics 102 Final
Recap | Box Score
83 Orlando Magic

A.J. Slaughter
10-22 FG | 2-8 3P | 7 STL | 9 AST | 25 PTS | -11

Slaughter, starting in place of Victor Oladipo at point guard on the last day of Summer League, produced one of the best stat lines of the week from any player. His 35 minutes were by far the most he’d played all week, and he responded by showing the Magic just what he can do when being handed extended minutes.

DeQuan Jones
5-10 FG | 3-4 3P | 1 REB | 0 AST | 15 PTS | -12

Looks at the box score. Looks at who shot the ball well. Sees that Jones was 3-for-4 from 3-point range. Gives Jones a B-minus for his grade. But seriously, folks. Jones may not return to the Magic and may not even get a training camp invite, but it was good to see him have a good game in an otherwise forgettable week.

Romero Osby
6-12 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 STL | 3 REB | 14 PTS | -15

Osby likely won’t see as many minutes during the regular season as he did this week. That being said, whenever he does get on the court, he brings an infectious energy on a consistent basis that raises the level of play of everyone around him. Intangibles aside, his mid-range jump shot should also help him get time on the court.

Kyle O’Quinn
1-5 FG | 1-3 3P | 4 REB | 3 AST | 3 PTS | -8

On the last day of Summer League, usually this is a chance for players that haven’t gotten any playing time during the week to get an extended look. With the Magic on the lookout for a third point guard, this was a chance for McGruder to show what he can do in front of the coaching staff. Unfortunately for the Kansas State alum, Slaughter outplayed him.

Boston Celtics

Look, this game was awful. I’m not even going to try and wax hyperbolic, making it out to be some glorious battle between two forces who wouldn’t give up. It was just a bad, bad game. That being said, the Celtics did play well, Kelly Olynyk wrapped up a tremendous Summer League on a high note, and Colton Iverson had his best game of the week. Yay.
