Before they take on the Toronto Raptors in their preseason finale, the Boston Celtics will hold a morning shootaround at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday morning at Healthpoint, the team's practice facility, in Waltham, MA.
Late on Wednesday, the Celtics host the Raptors at 7:30 p.m. EDT at TD Garden. Boston (1-0) defeated Toronto (0-1), 76-75, in their preseason opener on Sunday at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The C's were led by Ray Allen (12 points), Marquis Daniels (11 points) and Kevin Garnett had nine points and seven rebounds in the win.
Boston will be without Paul Pierce in the game, as the captain continues to recover from a bruised right heel that has kept him out of the majority of training camp. The C's may make two roster cuts to trim down to 15 players before or right after the game, with Greg Stiemsma, Jamal Sampson, Michael Sweetney and Gilbert Brown all likely in jeopardy of being cut.
