Top storylines and highlights

Welcome to the Bones Show!

Nah'Shon "Bones" Hyland got busy against he Dallas Mavericks to lead the Denver Nuggets to their first win at Summer League.

With the ball in his hands, he showed off his full offensive arsenal, getting to the rim and creating his own shot from the 3-point line with no shortage of confidence. He piled up 28 points, four assists, and six rebounds on 9-of-17 from the field and 5-of-8 from three-point range.

The 26th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft looks like a steal for the Nuggets.

Jalen Johnson looks ready to contribute right away

Speaking of steals, Jalen Johnson, the No. 20 overall pick in the draft continues to impress in Vegas, turning in another impressive performance.

Johnson posted 25 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a highlight-reel block, with his versatility and offensive ability shining in Vegas.

He was doing it on both ends for the Hawks. Look at how high he gets on this block!

Celtics stay perfect

The Celtics become the first team in Vegas to go 4-0, all but sealing their spot in the Summer League championship game.

Playing without Payton Pritchard and Yam Madar, Carsen Edwards stepped up with an impressive all-round performance, recording 16 points, seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

Boston had no shortage of highlights in this game, none better than this no-look dome from Edwards.

Not to be outdone, Romeo Langford continued his high-flying Summer League with this baseline fliush.

Scottie Barnes leads the comeback

Despite carrying a left ankle injury, No. 4 pick Scottie Barnes powered the Raptors to an 80-79 comeback win over the Charlotte Hornets.

Barnes recorded 23 points, five rebounds and four assists on 10-of-18 from the field and capped off a late13-2 run to tie it up at 79-79 before Dalano Banton's free throw put them in front for good.

Barnes added a steal and two blocks in his 30 minutes, giving the Raptors a surge on defence with his energy and activity.

Meanwhile, Precious Achiuwa, who scored 18 points on the night, had the play of the game, running the floor in transition for the two-handed jam

Knicks picks put on a show

The Knicks' 25th and 36th picks in the 2021 NBA Draft put on a show in their 103-94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, combining for 51 points.

Meanwhile, Obi Toppin, the No. 8 pick in last year's draft continues to get buckets in Vegas, scoring 20+ points for the fourth-straight game.
