July 14 is normally reserved for putting on big cotton candies in front of a fireworks display, a few hours after seeing a Frenchman win a mountain stage on the Tour de France. But for true NBA aficionados, the period is also perfect to end in complete relaxation in front of a few Summer League games… so send the program!
The evening program:
- 9:30 p.m.: Grizzlies – Celtics
- 10 p.m.: Hawks-Spurs
- 11:30 p.m.: Cavs – Pistons
- 0h: Bulls – Hornets
- 1h30: Knicks – Magic
- 2 a.m.: Mavs-Bucks
- 3:30 a.m.: Blazers – Rockets
- 4 a.m.: Nets – Sea bass
New cool program tonight in the Summer League, or rather tonight because the Vegas menu will start at 9:30 p.m. sharp, Bourg-en-Bresse time. And we leave very very strong with a big Grizzlies – Celtics who sent the powder, aperitif offered by these gentlemen Ziaire Williams, Santi Aldama, David Roddy and Jake LaRavia and Kenny Lofton for Memphis and Brodric Thomas, Mfiondu Kabengele or Justin Jackson for Boston. Big match in perspective, followed in the wake of Dejountico between the Spurs of Josh Primo and Blake Wesley and the Hawks of Tyrese Martin and Justin Tillman. Breathing and we continue with a duel between the Cavs of Ochai Agbaji and the Pistons of Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren, then the meeting between the Bulls and the Hornets, a new opportunity to rediscover the rookies Dalen Terry, Marko Simonovic, Mark Williams and Bryce McGowens.
July 14 in the retro because we are already on the 15th and we continue with the athletic youth of the Knicks against a Magic which definitively freed Paolo Banchero from his summer obligations, then a new potential demo from Sandro Mamukelashvili against Mavs who would be well advised to – finally – return their shots. Dessert ? You will be served by the Blazers and the Rockets, an opportunity to check the form of the kids from Houston and in particular the trio Josh Christopher / Jabari Smith Jr. / Tari Eason, then, to finish, by the Nets and the Wolves, for a match which, we prefer to warn you, may not unleash the crowds.
The French bonus, because on this national holiday we will sing the Marseillaise loudly
July 14 obliges, small speech on the French on the bridge. Jumble? Yves Pons with the Nets, Hugo Besson with the Bucks and – perhaps – a few hectometres from Sylvain Francisco, or even the potential presence of Killian Hayes with Detroit, those of Joel Ayayi and Alpha Kaba in Atlanta or even Juhann Begarin who will try to slam a third big game in a row in the jersey of the Celtics.
Seven games and eight hours of basketball in total, enough to combine a national holiday and a Vegas slip party. We will be there, once again!
