NBA Summer League Game 3 Open Thread: Wizards Vs. D-League Select

New, comments

LAS VEGAS -- Fresh off a six-point win over the Houston Rockets in their second game in the 2012 NBA Summer League, the Washington Wizards will look to make it two in a row when they square off with the NBA D-League Select Team at 10 p.m. The game won't be televised live, so if you want to watch it, you need to pony up the $5 to pay for Summer League Broadband.

The D-League Select roster certainly isn't as deep on paper as the Rockets', but there are some quality players. Andre Emmett, for example, was the D-League's leading scorer for a spell before being called up by the then-New Jersey Nets. He averaged 23 points per game with Reno then. Marcus Cousin is a big man that will give the Wizards' small frontcourt some trouble, and Mardy Collins has plenty of NBA experience, as does big man Chris Johnson and guard Jeremy Wise. It's a bunch of no-names to the casual fan, but they have a lot to play for throughout the week.

I would imagine the Wizards would stick with a similar starting five, though maybe they make a change at center after Garrett Siler's big game. In any event, if you can watch the game, join us and comment here.

UPDATE: Siler indeed will start in place of Shavlik Randolph. Everyone else remains the same.
