Celtics win Orlando Summer League finale

ORLANDO — The Celtics completed their Orlando portion of summer league with a sparkling 4-1 record after a 94-73 win over the host Orlando Magic on Friday morning at Amway Center.

Dionte Christmas, making a bid for a training camp invite, led the Celtics with 21 points while E’Twaun Moore added 18. Fab Melo turned in his best game of the week with 5 points and 10 rebounds. Larry Owens added 14 off the bench.

Jared Sullinger did not play, getting a break as the Celtics open their Las Vegas summer slate Monday against the Atlanta Hawks.

Christmas, a 6-foot, 5-inch guard, averaged 12.2 points over the five games and he finished Friday with 3 steals, 4 assists and 5 rebounds. He enjoyed a stellar career at Temple and has played in Europe the past three seasons.


“I thought it was a pretty good week,” he said. “As far as me individually, I think hopefully I’ve opened up a couple of eyes. I’ve been getting great feedback, teams have been saying I’m doing great out here and I just want to continue that today.”
