Even though it was only the first pre-season game, it's absolutely fantastic to have Boston Celtics basketball make its long awaited return. Below are some highlights from each half from the game. In the first half you'll see plenty of Shaquille O'Neal, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and even Semih Erden highlights. I've also included some clips of the frisky defense they displayed.
The second half will show more of Semih "Garden of" Erden, Delonte West and the tremendous bench play of UMass alum, Stephane Lasme. If you open the videos in youtube, you can watch the clips in HD.
