After rolling to their last two wins, the Summer Pacers will wrap up play in Vegas on Monday afternoon when they face the Wizards.

The two teams were supposed to open Summer League play but COVID issues for the Wiz canceled that game, so the Pacers opened last Monday against the Knicks. In the four games over the past week, the young Pacers have shown improved play and execution with their first, first round pick, Chris Duarte playing a leading role throughout.

The Pacers other first rounder, Isaiah Jackson has shown plenty to be excited about with his speed, bounce, effort and defensive instincts while we wait on his offensive game to develop. Until then, we’ll have to settle for rim diving alley oops and putback dunks.

The Wizards have been able to get three games in after having a squad clear of COVID issues. On Sunday, they beat the Summer Bucks, 93-83 for their first win.

The game tips at 3 p.m. ET on NBA TV.
