NBA Summer League 2012 Results: Bucks Down Celtics 88-87

Boston Celtics starting point guard Rajon Rondo was in attendance Saturday, but his presence on the sidelines couldn't help the C's summer league squad earn a victory. Behind 22 points from both Tobias Harris and John Henson, the Milwaukee Bucks edged Boston 88-87 in Las Vegas.

Dionte Christmas tallied a team-best 17 points for the Celtics, who will conclude Summer League play Sunday (3:30 ET on Comcast SportsNet New England) against the Los Angeles Clippers. Forward Jared Sullinger scored 16 points and grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds, while Jamar Smith added 16 points.

Boston was downed by poor first-half shooting (26-percent), which featured going 3-for-14 from behind the 3-point arc. Smith finished just five of 16 from the field.

Combined Harris and Henson shot 18-for-35 from the field and collected 16 rebounds.
