Several players once again stepped up their blowout win over the Brooklyn Nets, with Santi Aldama particularly impressive.

The Memphis youngsters seemed fired up this summer and will be looking to help the team continue their winning streak by beating the Celtics.

The Boston Celtics used the Summer League to analyze the strengths of their players by having them play in different positions.

Justin Jackson got extra playing time against the Golden State Warriors and capitalized by adding 24 points to the team total.

Mfiondu Kabengele has made his presence known inside the paint, registering a double-double in two of their three games so far. Juhann Begarin also thrived with increased playing time, recording 21 points, six rebounds and two blocks against the Warriors.

Overall, the Celtics performed well with decent contributions from several players.

Key player – JD Davison

Although JD Davison’s contribution to the score fluctuated, his playing ability helped many others get started. He’s registered 21 assists in the Las Vegas Summer League so far, showing superior vision among the youngsters around him.

Davison played as a forward against the Miami Heat and moved to guard in subsequent games. He was also effective on the defensive end, which will be crucial against a physical team like the Grizzlies.

Grizzlies. vs Celtics Match Prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies will have the marginal advantage in this game. Santi Aldama’s all-around ability poses a threat to the Boston Celtics, who have also been in good form.

The Celtics, however, have shot more than 40% from beyond the arc as a team in their last two games. If they’re able to get going early, things could swing in their favor against the Grizzlies.
