Brandon Bass and Avery Bradley each scored a team-high 16 point, and rookie center Vitor Faverani scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds and six blocks. I really think he should start, he's played very consistent, and he's nota walking mistake, at least in the preseason. Brandon Bass has slowly worked his way up through the preseason also, since the slow start.
Jeff Green suffered a bruised left forearm in the fourth quarter and had to take himself out of the game. Green showed some aggression,attacking the paint, and getting some freebies. Green finished 2-of-7 shooting with 12 points and four rebounds over 24 minutes of action.
Phil Pressey, who sat out the last game, provided Boston with a second-quarter spark from the point guard position. He finished with four points and four assists and was a team-best plus-10 in plus/minus.The young Celtics didn't go up against the "Big 5" of Brooklyn. But they played well Wednesday night, and that's all you can ask for at this point.
