Toronto Raptors (1-0) at Boston Celtics (2-0)
Sunday, October 10
6:00 PM ET
Preseason Game 3
TV: CSNNE, LP 751
Both teams are undefeated with the Celtics having played 2 games and the Raptors having played just one,beating Phoenix 129-78. Although this is the Celtics 2nd home game, it is the first game in the TD Garden since the first "home" game was played in Manchester NH.
As with every preseason game, it's hard to predict who will play and who will sit and how many minutes players get as coaches try to determine their rosters and players' roles. Doc has said that he may sit some of the starters in certain games so we may or may not see the usual starting lineups.
Jermaine O'Neal was back at practice on Saturday and looked good according to reports. He is listed as a game time decision but he expects to play. Delonte West also practiced and expects to play. Shaq sat out practice with sore a sore hip and may get some rest if JO is back in the lineup.
