The Celtics Talk Radio Crew Review the Celtics 4 game Preseason and look towards opening night. The Celtics Preseason started off with them going 2-0 after they beat the Orlando Magic 98-97 and then the Toronto Raptors 113-111. Then the Celtics would go on to lose their last 2 preseason games first to the Orlando Magic 103-102 and then the preseason finale to the Miami Heat 121-100. Putting them at the final record of 2-2 during the preseason. The Celtics during the preseason lost both Jaylen Brown and Al Horford who were both diagnosed with Covid 19 and had to go into quarantine. Meawhile the Celtics also had an issue with starting guard Marcus Smart as he missed the team flight to Miami which resulted in Celtics coach Ime Udoka suspending Smart for the Heat game even though it was reported he and the other stars werent likely to play in the game. So now the team looks towards the season opener on Wednesday against the New York Knicks. Due to the fact that the main players didnt play in the Miami game it is still a question as to who will Ime Udoka choose to have as his starting 5 outside of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Will Al Horford or Timelord start at Center or will he choose to start them both and let Horford be the PF and Timelord be the C and go with 3 small players rather then going with the way the NBA has kinda been trending which is the 4 small and 1 big lineup? Is Smarts spot in the lineup or any of his minutes in jeopardy with players like Dennis Schroder and Jason Richardson here now? Who will the 2nd lineup consist of? We give our thoughts on those questions in this final before the season edition of Celtics Talk Radio
