The Philadelphia 76ers have lost two of their three Summer League games. This indefinitely sidelined them from the race to enter the championship game. However, the 76ers will be looking to end their tournament on a high note.

Despite the setbacks, the 76ers have found great talent in the Summer League. Tyler Bey, Charles Bassey and Cassius Winston have all been brilliant for the team in all three games. Going into the game against the Nuggets, the team hopes these players will give their best.

One of the most visible problems for the Philadelphia 76ers in the tournament has been offense. The team did not score more than 85 points once. They seem to lack energy at this end of the field, which has clearly reflected their results.

Although the game against the Nuggets is not of primary importance, the 76ers hope to work on their offense. If they are able to improve in that department, they could put up a great fight against the Nuggets.


Key Player – Cassius Winston

Cassius Winston played for the Washington Wizards in the NBA. However, the Philadelphia 76ers called him up to represent their Summer League team this season. This decision paid off well as Winston was a great addition for them,

The young guard is phenomenal and can score as well as make plays for the team. Winston is currently averaging 7.0 APG in the Summer League. His ability to pick players easily helped him get a lot of playing time in the tournament.

Winston is a two-way player with the Washington Wizards. His performances have been excellent and coach Wes Unseld Jr. will certainly be pleased with the development of his game. He played seven games for the Wizards last season, but that could increase significantly in the 2022-23 season.

After starting their campaign with a loss, the Denver Nuggets have won back-to-back Summer League games. They were one of the most exciting teams to watch in the tournament.

Collin Gillespie was one of the Nuggets’ best players in three games. He has averaged 13.3 PPG and 4.7 APG so far.

The Nuggets’ greatest weapon has been their defense. Although they couldn’t do anything meaningful on the offensive side, the team remained locked in on the defensive side of things.

Doing that against the Philadelphia 76ers will give them their third win of the tournament.


Key Player – Collin Gillespie

Collin Gillespie went undrafted in the 2022 NBA draft. However, the Nuggets saw the potential and gave him a two-way contract. He was added to their Summer League roster and the move turned out to be the right one for the team. Gillespie’s dynamic style of play was fun to watch.

He is a natural goalscorer and can also make great plays for the team. He received the prestigious Bob Cousy Award for his contribution to Villanova. Gillespie will be looking to keep firing on all cylinders in the NBA.

Certainly, not being drafted will sink in his head. However, he will use it to prove to the teams that they were wrong by not drafting him.
