The Boston Celtics dropped to 0-2 in the NBA preseason last night, falling to the New York Knicks by a single point, 103-102. Former WKU guard Courtney Lee got his second straight start for the C’s, but wasn’t much of an offensive factor, only scoring 2 points and going 1-5 from the field. However, Lee made his presence known in other ways, grabbing 4 defensive boards and lead all players, Knick or Celtics, in time on the floor with 25:30.
The C’s will are back in action tonight against the 76ers, and are looking for their first victory of the preseason docket, and Lee is again penciled in to start the game, which would be his third in a row, a pretty clear indication he will start a good bit during the regular season.
