BOSTON – Two familiar foes with unfamiliar rosters will face off against each other at 7 p.m. tonight in Philadelphia. The Boston Celtics (1-2) and the Philadelphia 76ers (1-1), who collided in the Eastern Conference Semifinals last season, will meet for the first time in 2012-13.
HARTFORD, Conn. – The New York Knicks pick-and-rolled the Boston Celtics to death Saturday night en route to a 98-95 overtime victory at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn.
The combination of point guard Pablo Prigioni and center Chris Copeland was a nightmare for the C’s over the final six minutes of regulation and five minutes of overtime. They ran the pick-and-roll on nearly every possession and the Celtics simply had no answers.
BOSTON – More than two weeks into training camp and the Boston Celtics (1-1) can finally face off against an NBA opponent. The C’s went 1-1 during their Eurotrip and will play their first game in the States against the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Hartford, Conn.
