A Look at the Celtics-Raptors Season Opener in Toronto

Celtics vs Raptors (Celtic-nation.com)

Losing 3 veterans (Garnett, Pierce, Terry) from a team is hard. Rajon Rondo and the Celtics got some Nets in return, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Keith Bogans and Marshon Brooks), so this trade wasn’t a bad trade at all if you really see who you have and think about it. Boston fans, don’t be upset. Of course, the team lost veterans but Celtics will rebuild in the next two years around Rondo.

The Celtics still have one of the best point guard defenders in Avery Bradley. Jeff Green has gotten better each and every year in the league, and may be one season from being a star player. Brandon Bass, whether he is starting or coming off the bench is still a good asset. Bass isn’t the tallest forward in the game but he knows how to use his big body to get rebounds.

The Celtics have a line of rookies on this team, but in the preseason, these rookies showed they could really play. They also have a rookie NBA coach in Brad Stevens.

If Gerald Wallace comes off the bench, he will be in double figures in points. Brandon Bass off the bench will get 10 or more rebounds. Celtics backups will have to put up some points up against the Raptors possible line up of Lowry, DeRozan, Gay, Johnson and Valanciunas.
