NBA Summer League 2014: Clippers vs Bulls Preview and Open Thread

New, comments

The Clippers have their first SL game today.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers' first NBA Las Vegas Summer League game is tonight at 5:30pm Pacific time.  They're playing against the Chicago Bulls, whose first game is also today.

For more information on the Clippers' roster, click here. You should expect Delonte West to be the Clippers' best player, although summer league can get wacky.  DeAndre Liggins and Jon Brockman should also both contribute.

They're going up against a Bulls team that features recent 11th overall pick Doug McDermott.  He's joined by one-year vet Tony Snell and Cameron Bairstow, the 49th overall pick.  The Bulls have less NBA experience on their roster, with 10 of their 12 players being rookies.  The Clippers have 6 rookies on their squad.

The game starts at 5:30 and I believe it will be available on NBA TV.  You can also buy the NBA's streaming service for the entire summer league for $5, which is cheap, but you're getting a whole lot of nothing.

If you're basketball starved then have fun, I guess.  If you're Clippers starved then you're out of luck because none of their players have played a game in a Clipper uniform and while it's not impossible, it's unlikely that any of them will be on the roster next season.
