Winners and Losers from Week 1 of Boston Celtics' Preseason
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

At the end of the day there is one indisputable loser from the Boston Celtics' 2013 preseason: Celtics fans. The new pieces of the team have not fit together well. New coach Brad Stevens has them playing quality defense and sharing the ball, but the team began its preseason 0-3.

Week 1 saw Boston fall at home to the Toronto Raptors and then come up short in rallies against the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers.

That is not to say that everything has been dark. Several Celtics, ranging from wily veterans to unproven youngsters, have managed to play well, adding another level of intrigue to what Boston's lineup will look like without Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett when the season begins.

On the other hand, several of the team's expensive, mid-tier veterans also started their years slowly and rookie Kelly Olynyk has been anything but impressive in his first three legitimate NBA games.

Since this is far from an optimistic time for the Celtics' fans, let's take a moment to look back at Week 1 and assess who the winners and losers on Boston's roster have been thus far.
