Summer League: Celtics 87, Hawks 69


Posted Monday July 16, 2012 6:07PM

The Boston Celtics cruised to an 87-69 victory in the first game of the fourth day of action at the 2012 NBA Summer League on the campus of the University of Nevada - Las Vegas. Boston's attack resulted in five Celtics scoring in double figures, including 14 points apiece from Kris Joseph and Jared Sullinger. Stephanie Lasme and Dionte Christmas each notched 11 while Jamar Smith tallied 10 points in the win.

The Celtics, playing in their first game in Las Vegas, started slow falling behind by as many as six points early before tying the game at 15 on a Christmas and-one. From then, the Celtics never trailed in the contest. Boston mounted their comeback from the free throw line, hitting 10-of-13 from the stripe - Atlanta only connected on four of their six foul shots in the period. At the end of one, the Celtics led 23-16.

It was all Boston in the second quarter as the Celtics netted 11 buckets to Atlanta's four. The team from Beantown stretched their lead to 18 points to finish the half up 49-31 on the back of E'Twaun Moore nine-point explosion in the second. Keith Benson paced the Hawks with 10 first-half points.

The Hawks outscored the Celtics in the third period 22-18, but the surge wasn't enough, Boston held on to a 14-point lead, 67-43 going into the fourth quarter, where Boston led by as many as 23 points.

Atlanta was led by Keith Benson's 10-point, 10-rebound outing. Mike Scott and John Jenkins each chipped in with 12 points in the loss.

Boston returns to action on Tuesday, July 17, when the team faces the Chicago Bulls at 7pm PT, while Atlanta takes on the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, July 18 at 5pm PT.
