BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics continued to roll in Summer League action Tuesday with a 79-74 win over the Chicago Bulls in Las Vegas.
E’Twaun Moore scored a team-high 25 points on 10-for-19 shooting as Boston improved to 2-0 in the Las Vegas portion of their summer league schedule.

First-round pick Jared Sullinger pulled down 14 rebounds in the win, including five off the offensive glass.
The win came at a cost though, as second-round pick Kris Joseph had to leave the game in the first half with a hyperextened knee. It’s unclear if Joseph will be available when Boston next hits the floor Thursday afternoon against the Sacramento Kings.
Joseph has averaged 9.1 points per game for Boston in his seven summer league games.
With Tuesday’s win, the Celtics are now 6-1 in Summer League action.
