Celtics Defeat Raptors in Pre-Season Game: Excuse to Bash Toronto
Last night the Boston Celtics beat the Toronto Raptors 91-87 in a meaningless pre-season game. However, looking over the box score there are some striking points. The Raptors are bound to be the worst team in the NBA as Andrea Bargnani in their best player -- not exactly one of the league's superstars.
On the other hand, the Celtics are one of three teams that will likely take home the title this season. That said, it shouldn't be surprising that the Celtics are better than the Raptors, but the fact that Boston's bench is better than Toronto -- well that's pretty shocking.
Last night the Raptors started Jarret Jack, Sonny Weems, DeMar DeRozen, Reggie Evans and Andrea Bargnani. The top five from the C's bench? Nate Robinson, Delonte West, Marquis Daniels, Glen "Big Baby" Davis and Jermaine O'Neal. In the Eastern conference the Celtics bench would be a borderline playoff team while the Raptors will struggle to win even fifteen games.
Do you think any other bench unit's could top the Raptors? Where does the Celtics bench rank amongst the league's thirty teams? Leave your input in the comments section.
