The Las Vegas Summer League tournament is in full swing, and there will be more fast-paced action coming your way Tuesday evening. These games have been nothing short of eye-popping, as players like Jayson Tatum, Lonzo Ball, and Markelle Fultz all showed fans a glimpse of their talent and tantalizing skill sets.

However, Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. and Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox have also been solid in the games they played. Smith racked up 25 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and four steals in an 88-77 victory against the Phoenix Suns on July 9. Fox had 18 points, four assists, and five steals in an 89-85 loss against the Phoenix Suns on July 7.

Don't worry, folks, Tuesday’s games should leave you in awe like plenty of the prior games in this year’s Summer League. Here are two games you should watch.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics - 6:30 p.m. ET

Indeed, we’ve seen these two teams go head to head before this summer, and Tatum had a great game against Philadelphia on July 3. He accumulated 21 points and seven rebounds to help Boston defeat the 76ers, 89-88. In fact, Tatum nailed the game-winning shot to knock off the 76ers. Let’s see if he’ll have an encore performance.

Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick, won’t play for the rest of the Summer League because of a sprained left ankle he suffered in a 95-93 victory against the Golden State Warriors on July 8. The injury isn't serious, but the 76ers are erring on the side of caution, which is smart at this juncture.

Even though Fultz won't play, fans can still watch Tatum continue to show people why he was a top-three pick in this year’s draft.

Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks - 8 p.m. ET

Lots of people might not watch this game, but they should. Miami used its first round pick on Kentucky’s Edrice “Bam” Adebayo. During a 75-74 win over the San Antonio Spurs on July 8, the 6’10 power forward scored 18 points and corralled 10 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field. Adebayo plays with lots of energy and toughness, qualities fans love to see out of players.

For Dallas, Smith showed fans that he’s capable of doing anything to help his team win. Against the Suns, he shot over 50 percent from the field and beyond the arc. Fans should keep an eye on him moving forward.
