Vegas Summer League Day 6: 76ers Elijah Millsap tied a NBA Summer League record with seven steals to go with 19 points, three boards, and two assists in 24 minutes off the bench.
Millsap has made a career out of playing in the D-League since his last season of college ball in the 2009-10 season as a member of UAB. He is going to need to have a few more showing like this in order to prove he is ready to make it in the NBA, but even if he does there is little chance he plays a significant role for the Sixers this upcoming season.

Tom Brady completed 23-of-42 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots 30-24 OT loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Brady turned in one of his better games of the season and Sunday and while he's certainly had better numbers in previous games it is hard to ignore the lack of weapons on the offensive side of the ball that he had at his disposal with injuries to Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola over the last three weeks. Brady tossed three more touchdown passes on Sunday night, connecting with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler and Brandon Bolden for the scores. Late in the fourth quarter the Patriots passing attack suffered another tremendous blow as Rob Gronkowski was carted off with a knee injury which at the time appeared to be severe and yet Brady still managed to drive the Patriots down the field for a game tying field goal try to send the contest into OT. If Gronk is forced to miss any extended amount of time the fantasy impact for Brady will take another big blow as the available offensive weapons will be reduced to the very bottom of the depth chart.
