It's certainly not an actual NBA game, but from watching Richaun Holmes in the Philadelphia 76ers 76-62 win over the Boston Celtics in the Utah Jazz Summer League, you can tell that Holmes has the talent to be an NBA player.

Holmes nearly notched a double-double in Tuesday night's contest, scoring 13 points on 5-12 shooting and collecting eight rebounds along with two blocks. The former Bowling Green star was 1-5 from beyond the arc, but showed an improving stroke.

It was Holmes's hustle on both ends of the court that got many excited about his game. He's got a nose for the ball, and this sequence proved to be the showcase of what the 6-foot-8 forward can do:

Being able to produce on both offense and defense will get you a spot on an NBA roster, and will also get you attention from those watching and scouting the game.

The 76ers have tomorrow off, but get back into action on Thursday against the host Jazz at 9 p.m Eastern.
