The final day of the preliminary round of the Las Vegas Summer League is here.

Next up is the single elimination tournament for the top eight seeds and a consolation game for each of the other 24 teams.

First up, here's what to watch on Day 7 of Summer League...

Toronto Raptors (1-2) vs. Indiana Pacers (0-3)

The Raptors have lost two of their three Summer League games, but Chris Boucher has been impressive.

With 22.7 points per game, Boucher currently ranks fourth in scoring behind Frank Jackson, who has appeared in only one game, and Lonnie Walker IV and Nickeil Alexander-Walker, both of whom have appeared in two games. Additionally, Boucher is averaging 10.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per contest.

Leading the Pacers is guard Aaron Holiday, the 23rd pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Atlanta Hawks (1-2) vs. Washington Wizards (1-2)

The No. 9 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Rui Hachimura bounced back from a quiet Summer League debut to score a team-high 19 points (6-14 FG, 7-8 FT) in Washington's three-point loss to the Brooklyn Nets earlier this week.

Hachimura missed the team's third Summer League game due to rest, but he is expected to play against the Hawks.

Portland Trail Blazers (1-2) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (2-1)

Who on the Blazers will step up in place of Anfernee Simons?

The Blazers guard had picked up from where he left off in the team's regular-season finale with averages of 22.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists through three Summer League games. He was at his best in his most recent outing, scoring a game-high 35 points, 15 of which came in the first quarter on a perfect 5-for-5 shooting from 3-point range.

Unfortunately for Simons, he left the game with a sprained ankle.

The Thunder, meanwhile, are led by Hamidou Diallo, who won last season's dunk contest. He's already had a couple of memorable dunks in Summer League, such as this one in OKC's overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers:

Utah Jazz (2-1) vs. Houston Rockets (1-2)

Chris Clemons has been putting on a show in Las Vegas. Against the Dallas Mavericks over the weekend, the 5-foot-9 point guard made seven 3-pointers en route to 25 points and even threw down an alley-oop dunk.

Clemons currently ranks 5th in Summer League scoring with 22.3 points per game.

Sacramento Kings (2-1) vs. LA Clippers (2-1)

In a big win over the Wizards, Terance Mann came close to a triple-double for the Clippers with 15 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.

He's been playing at a high level at Summer League, averaging 8.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game.

The Kings, meanwhile, are coming off of a close loss to the Rockets.

Boston Celtics (3-0) vs. Memphis Grizzlies (3-0)

The Celtics and Grizzlies are looking to join the Detroit Pistons and Minnesota Timberwolves as the only undefeated teams heading into the single elimination tournament.

The Celtics have two exciting prospects in Edwards Carsen, who is averaging 19.0 points per game in Summer League, and Tacko Fall.

Fall is playing only 13.0 minutes per game, but he's shown some promise on both ends of the court.

The Grizzlies have been without the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft in Ja Morant throughout Summer League, but they've gotten it done with a balanced effort from the likes of Yuta Watanabe, Brandon Clarke, Tyler Harvey and Bruno Caboclo.
