Boston Celtics: Jordan Walsh Breaking Out in 2023 Summer League

The former five-star has already had a few breakthrough performances with the Boston Celtics after only one year at Arkansas.

As the 38th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, Walsh was widely regarded as a defensive stalwart. After three Summer League games in Las Vegas, his offense has taken center stage.

Against the Los Angeles Lakers, he poured in 25 points, eight rebounds, two assists, and one steal for the Boston Celtics.

To fuel the Celtics to a five-point victory, he shot 50 percent from the field and made two of his seven 3-point attempts.

There is no doubt Walsh has already benefited from NBA spacing. Despite being a strong and important member of Arkansas's lone collegiate team,

His offense was lacking, as he averaged just 7.1 points and shot 28 percent from beyond the arc.

Walsh has already racked up two notable scoring performances.

He scored 18 points in his first game for Boston, hitting four of his six 3-point attempts.

Next, he scored 12 points, three assists, two rebounds, and a steal against Washington. His field goal percentage was one-for-six.
