The Boston Celtics wrapped up proceedings at the Utah Summer League with a close 87-86 win over San Antonio Spurs with Ghanaian Power Forward Ben Bentil scoring eight points. The 6 foot 8 inch former Providence College standout also chipped in four rebounds in just 12 minutes.

Bentil, who can also play as a Small Forward, was limited to playing less minutes in Boston’s three game showing at the pre season scrimmage as he checked in 18 and 17 minutes against Philadelphia Sixers and home side, Utah Jazz respectively.

Drafted 51st by Boston in the 2016 Draft, Bentil averaged 8.7 points and four rebounds 15 minutes across three games as Orlando Magic emerged champions in the league.

The first ever Ghanaian born NBA player will be keen on playing more as Boston takes on Chicago Bulls later today in Las Vegas.
