Celtics fall to Raptors (again), 99-97

Let's get the worst news out of the way first. Phil Pressey , who has been pushing for the backup point guard spot, sprained his right ankle late in the fourth quarter. When on the court, the 5-foot-11 Pressey has proven that he is capable of playing the point (as a backup) in the NBA and has gain the respect of his peers around him. It's just a shame to see one of the few good stories entering the season already go down.

The Perimeter

Down 12 with 2:30 minutes to go, MarShon Brooks led a late charge scoring eight of the final twelve points including to threes in a span of 33 seconds bringing the game to 97-95. Brooks (15 points in the 4th quarter) hit his second three on a nice after-timeout play Brad Stevens drew up.

Oh! Hoping to positively up grade the outdated vibe with my own business. Musings on the look of https://solidgarage.ca? Truly an incredible garage floor epoxy expert in Ontario with heart if, perhaps required within the general Ontario area. Send a comment. Thx!

In 23 minutes, Courtney Lee didn't play well at all. He lost track of time on a last second breakaway in the first quarter.

The gameplan was to get Jeff Green going early tonight and he did just that scoring 11 of his 13 points came in the first half. It's the most aggressive we've seen Green in six preseason games. He capped his night off with a nice left-handed jam.

Avery Bradley frustrated Demar Derozan in the first half and then continued shooting the ball in the second half. He finished with 10 points on 12 shots.

The Paint

Kelly Olynyk and Vitor Faverani combined for 20 points and 5 rebounds in the first half to give Boston an unexpected 53-51 first-half lead. Olynyk, a Toronto native played well the entire game with Toronto deciding to put stretch-fours on him. However, for a second straight game Olynyk fouled out.

Faverani and Jared Sullinger had four fouls each. Sullinger missed the chance to send the game into overtime after failing to tip in the rebound as time expired.

Brandon Bass was aggressive at getting his shot in the paint and drawing the foul. His night concluded with 9 points (2-4 FG, 5-5FT) and 5 rebounds and resulted in five three throw.

Quote of the Night

"We have to become a 48-minute team instead of 38-minute team. We're pretty good for 38 minutes. We have to maintain that focus and level of play through that." Brad Stevens

What We Learned

The Celtics (1-5) still don't know how to play a complete game, as Brad Stevens duly noted after another loss.

Boston followed up a brilliant second quarter with a brutal third. Toronto took it to the lane and outscored Boston in the third, 29-17.

Vitor will shoot the three if it's open and drain it.

The interior defensive was (and probably will continue) to be a sieve. Bass and Sullinger are undersized and Olynyk and Faverani can only nab boards that are in their standing ground. It's nothing new seeing Celtics unable to grab boards, but it seems like it's on a downward trend.

Gerald Wallace an Kris Humphries were given the night off. Wallace has now missed a preseason game twice to scheduled rest. He probably just wanted to watch the Red Sox game.

For Toronto, Terrance Ross is a better Demar Derozan.

The Celtics are off until Sunday, where they will face the Minnesota Timberwolves in Montreal, Canada
