Gerald Wallace started and brought a much-needed dose of intensity to the floor, pacing Boston with 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting with three assists, two steals, and two rebounds over 25:11. Jeff Green added 12 points off the pine for the Celtics. For Boston, it's the team's sixth loss in seven games this preseason.
