The Celtics started out slow in their first preseason game of the year. The Celtics missed their first seven shots of the game.The Raptors jumped out 14-4. Kris Humphries scored the C's first two points of the night, and his first two in a Celtics uniform. The starting lineup was Humphries, Bass, Green, Lee, and Bradley. I think this will be the same lineup opening night. After the 14-4 run the Celtics went on a 10-2 run to cut the lead to 16-14.
After that poor start for the Celtics, they hung around until the Raptors pulled away in the 4th with a 97-89 win. Green finished with a lowly six points on 2-of-7 shooting over 23 minutes. Take his performance as you will. Not an impressive game. A nice thing from this game was Rondo on the bench aiding the coaching staff. Green finished with a mere six points on 2-of-7 shooting over 23 minutes.Jared Sullinger added 14 points, six rebounds, and four assists over 20 minutes.
The Celtics were killed on the glass 46-26 , was Doc Rivers coaching? I'll have more on this game late tonight, and tomorrow morning.
