Did Boston Celtics second-year point guard Payton Pritchard make a mistake by leaving Las Vegas Summer League to go participate in a pro-am tournament in Portland, Oregon? The Celtics were on an absolute tear with him in their initial slate of games before the West Linn native took leave to go drop a boatload of points in the Oregonian exhibition series.

When he came back and convinced Boston’s coaching staff to re-insert him into the summer Celtics’ rotation, the same magic wasn’t there. Should he have simply stuck around if the goal was to win a summer league championship, or did Pritchard simply have an “Off Night”?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast discussed this quandary on their latest episode, with Kwani A. Lunis and A. Sherrod Blakely debating whether Fast PP left SIn City too soon.
