LAS VEGAS – The Boston Celtics earned the top seed in the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2019 tournament, following the first seven days of action in Las Vegas. The Detroit Pistons (2), Minnesota Timberwolves (3), New Orleans Pelicans (4), Miami Heat (5), Dallas Mavericks (6), Brooklyn Nets (7) and Memphis Grizzlies (8) round out the eight tournament teams. This marks the first year of the eight-team tournament format.
The single-elimination tournament tips off on Saturday, July 13 (Sunday, July 14, PHL time), at the Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The tournament will culminate in a championship game on Monday, July 16 (Tuesday, July 17, PHL time).
Saturday’s (Sunday, PHL time) tournament slate features four quarterfinal games. The top-seeded Celtics tip off the day when they take on the Grizzlies at 1:30 p.m. PT at the Thomas & Mack Center, followed by the Pelicans and Heat (3:30 p.m. PT), Detroit and Brooklyn (5:30 p.m. PT) and Minnesota and Dallas (7:30 p.m. PT).
The 24 teams who did not qualify for the tournament will each play a consolation game, tipping off Friday, July 12 (Saturday, July 13, PHL time), at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion and conclude Saturday, July 13 (Sunday, July 14, PHL time) at Cox Pavilion.
Each of the 32 teams played four games apiece since the event tipped off on July 5 (July 6, PHL time), with the results of those games determining the tournament seeding. Seeding for the tournament was determined by win-loss records, with ties being broken using quarter-points followed by point differential.
