Summer League: Sixers Take On Bulls In Round Two

by Max Rappaport Writer

LAS VEGAS –– As a result of their 85-63 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, the Sixers have earned a spot in Round Two of the tournament portion of Samsung NBA Summer League. 

Thursday at 10pm (EST), Philadelphia will take on the top-seeded Chicago Bulls, who have been led by rookie forward Doug McDermott so far in Las Vegas. The Creighton alum has scored 51 points on just 25 shots in his last two games. Tony Snell has averaged 20.7 points (47.9 FG%), 3.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists through three Summer League contests.

Sixers swingmen Jordan McRae and K.J. McDaniels missed Wednesday’s win due to a pair of sprained left ankles; Nerlens Noel (rest) sat as well. The three are listed as game-time decisions for Thursday night’s elimination game against Chicago.

NBA TV will broadcast the game and will offer a live stream of the game via Summer League Live.
