Pacers vs. Mavericks: Summer League and Free Agency Game Thread

The Pacers try to remain unbeaten in Orlando as Summer League play continues on the Fourth of July.

The Pacers take on the Dallas Mavericks at the Orlando Summer League on the Fourth of July for their fourth game in four days.

The Pacers are 3-0 and working through injuries and fatigue but still finding a way to get Ws. All eyes are on rookie, T.J. Leaf who scored 19 points with 10 rebounds on Monday against the Heat. While he’s struggling to guard bigger, stronger center types, Leaf has certainly shown a burst and great second jump that makes him a tough cover at the other end.

Jonathan Motley and Dwight Buycks have to serve as notable Mavs in this one since more familiar faces are waiting to play in the Las Vegas Summer League. So that means no, Dennis Smith, Jr., Yogi Ferrell or A.J. Hammons today. All are expected to play some in Vegas, though.
