Payton Pritchard Celtics

Boston Celtics’ guard Payton Pritchard was excused from the team’s Summer League game on Saturday to play in a Portland Pro-Am game – and he gave the crowd a show.

Pritchard scored 92 points en route to a 165-163 win.

Free agent guard Mike James, who played most recently for the Brooklyn Nets, scored 70 points for the opposing team.

Pritchard, 23, was one of the best performers at the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 20.3 points, 8.7 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.0 steals on 51.4% shooting from the field and 57.7% shooting from three in three games, per NBC Sports Boston.

Last season with the Celtics, Pritchard averaged 7.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 19.2 minutes per game.

Pritchard will likely play more minutes with the Celtics this upcoming season due to the departure of Kemba Walker.
