Final seconds of Celtics/Raptors was…. pure preseason

Oct 17, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

Just because the games are meaningless doesn’t mean there isn’t some drama — there are close games and exciting endings in the preseason, too.

Look at the end of the Celtics/Raptors game from Wednesday. After a Celtics bucket on a nice cut and finish by Jared Sullinger, it’s a two point game with 11 seconds to go.

Then in rapid succession we get to see a blown defensive coverage by Boston on the inbounds that should have iced the game for Toronto, a blown wide open dunk by Julyan Stone, then Jordan Crawford trying to win the game for Boston then making what can only be called an ugly decision.

That is preseason NBA, people.

    That last part with Sully missing was reminiscent of when Big Baby tried to dunk it against the heat and blew it.

    This is gonna be a long season.
