NBA fans were treated to some fast-paced action during the five-day Las Vegas Summer League. Now, they will get to watch the Las Vegas Summer League playoffs, which begins Wednesday evening. This is a single-elimination tournament where the first losing teams will get a chance to play one final consolation game. You can always look at the bracket, too.
Each player participating in the Summer League action will continue to show fans that they deserve to play on an NBA roster. They all have different skill sets that would make coaches around the league happy.
You may not be able to watch all eight games, but there are two matchups you should keep an eye on.
Washington Wizards vs. Miami Heat — 6 p.m. ET
Shooting guard Sheldon McClellan averaged 19 points over the last two games and shot an astounding 66.3 percent from the field. He’s great at bulldozing his way to the rack and connecting on mid-range shots. He has a chance to carve out a spot on the Wizards roster if he keeps this offensive barrage going.
For the Heat, rookie center Bam Adebayo has been asserting his dominance on the court over the past games, averaging 14.5 points 7.5 rebounds. Adebayo plays with so much energy and toughness. He isn’t afraid to crash the boards and use his frame to shield opposing players away from the ball.
Sacramento Kings vs Milwaukee Bucks — 8:30 p.m. ET
Kings rookie point guard De’Aaron Fox is known for his speed, playmaking abilities, and scoring. He’s averaged 14.5 points over the last two games, while shooting 50 percent from the field. Fox is the Kings’ point guard of the future, and he has All-Star potential written all over him.
Shooting guard Rashad Vaughn led the Bucks in scoring over the last two games, averaging 21.5 points. Vaughn, 20, is heading into his third season in the NBA and only averages 3.2 points per game in his career. Let’s see if he can maintain this level of play.
