Doc said he plans to play the starters about half the game; he wants his players just to compete and get accustomed to playing opponents again. They are still struggling a bit from jet lag and time difference and travel but they are more than ready to finally compete in an actual game.
What to watch in the preseason: Which big man sets himself apart as the back up at the five...... Which players on the bubble will earn those last two spots..... Which units show the best chemistry...... Will we see the small ball lineups and will they really run..... Will the Celtics finally solve their rebounding woes......
