In a wildly entertaining game that saw 20 lead changes, the Milwaukee Bucks (1-1) lost a heartbreaker to the Boston Celtics (1-1), 111-109, as Matt Ryan hit a miracle three-pointer with 0.8 seconds remaining to give Boston the win inside Cox Pavilion in the 2022 Las Vegas NBA Summer League.
Sandro Mamukelashvili I thought had a heck of a game. He finished with 28 points on 9-of-19 from the field, including 3-for-5 from beyond the arc, nine rebounds, three steals, two blocks and two assists in 30 minutes.
Mamu also had a filthy dunk in the final minute of the game that you can see here.
Lindell Wigginton was great off the bench and looked confident. Wigginton finished with 24 points on 8-of-13 from the field, 3-of-7 from 3-point range, five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 23 minutes.
I was really impressed with how Mamukelashvili and Wigginton played tonight and hopefully this continues.
First round draft pick MarJon Beauchamp finished with 15 points on 6-of-12 from the field (2-of-4 from 3), with three rebounds and an assist in 29 minutes.
Beauchamp’s shooting has been a little hot and cold, but he has looked really solid defensively and looks nice finishing around the rim. He’s been super aggressive and has finished through some tough contact.
I feel he has played too fast at times, especially early on in games and once he has settled in then things have been better.
The Bucks will continue with Summer League play will play the Minnesota Timberwolves (1-1) on Wednesday, July 13th from inside the Thomas & Mack Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. (Central Time) and will be nationally televised on NBA TV.
