WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Chicago Bulls

WHAT: Summer League Game Four!

WHERE: Thomas & Mack Arena, Las Vegas

WHEN: 5:30 p.m. CT

HOW: NBAtv

THE STORY: Well... things have gotten sad here in Las Vegas Summer League. Dennis Smith Jr. and Dorian Finney-Smith went home. Rick Carlisle and Luka Doncic are heading to Slovenia on a “get to know you” trip. Don’t ask why Dennis Smith Jr and DFS went home, because neither played well enough to be even close to be considered “too good for Summer League”.

That leaves us with Jalen Brunson, who is shooting a crisp 19% from the floor, and KOSTAS. There’s also Ray Spalding (did I spell it right this time? I’m not going to check. Summer League is not for diligent work) who is really fun for this setting but I couldn’t tell you if he’s a NBA player. Everyone else is... well, they’re all guys. None of them are terrible, so far as I can tell, none of them are really good either.

So that means they are going to win the Summer League tournament. Let’s go!
