The Celtics remain the only undefeated team in the Orlando Summer League and they put their undefeated record on the line when they take on the 2-1 Pistons today. The Pistons feature the 6'11" Andre Drummond, who the Pistons nabbed with the 9th pick in the draft. Drummond is averaging 7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.

Another player to watch on the Pistons is guard Brandon Knight who is averaging 13 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists. Also playing well is Austin Daye, son of former Celtic Darren Daye, who is averaging 18 points and 6 rebounds per game.

For the Celtics, Jared Sullinger, Kris Joseph, Dionte Christmas, and E'Twaun Moore have all consistently impressed in the 3 games so far. Fab Melo has shown some flashes, as have JaJuan Johnson, Sean Williams and Jonathon Gibson. This team has been fun to watch and I expect that this game will be a fun one as well.
