Celtics heating up: Tempers flare

WALTHAM -- As tempers flared between Delonte West and Von Wafer during a post-practice drill, the Celtics continued preparations for the Miami Heat on Sunday at their practice facility. 

 

Wafer, who won the last 15th and final roster spot after the final preseason game last Wednesday, played with Luke Harangody against West and Semih Erden in a 2-on-2 drill as extra time is being spent at the end of practice for new players trying to learn the Celtics offensive sets before they open the season Tuesday night at home against Miami. 

 

"Listen, it's game one, even if it wasn't Miami, everybody is going to be excited," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "This is a special situation. Let's just be honest. Everybody is excited about it. Our guys try to downplay it until you walk through the locker room and hear them talking about it. The film is on all day, watching Miami. Let's just go out and have fun and...

Next for O'Neal: Riding subway as 'Shaquita'

WALTHAM -- Just days after heading to Harvard Square to pretend he was a statue for an hour, Shaquille O'Neal revealed what his next experiments will be.

 

Initially, Shaq mentioned that his next public foray will be seasonally-based.

 

"I thinking of buy a snowsuit, standing in the middle of a field and have people throw snowballs at me," he said. "Something different."

 

But then, after a suggestion from a reporter that he could integrate the 'T' into his next field trip, O'Neal latched onto the idea.

 

"No, never," he said when asked if he had ever been on the subway in Boston. "That’s a good idea. I’m going to do that. What’s today? Sunday? I’m going to do that next week."

 

O'Neal then took it to another level when explaining how he was going to appear when boarding the train. He said that he would be...

Doc on C's D: 'We don't have a Tony Allen'

WALTHAM -- The Celtics have plenty of size and depth but coach Doc Rivers admitted that one of the questions coming into Tuesday's season opener against Miami is who will fill the important role of defensive stopper like Tony Allen did successfully in the playoffs last season. 

 

"I don't know yet, honestly. We don't have a Tony Allen here," Rivers said of Allen, who left in the offseason and signed a deal with the Memphis Grizzlies. 

 

Rivers added that he believes that Marquis Daniels could fill that role eventually, now that he is back from an injured right shoulder that slowed him for the second half of last season.

 

"Marquis is healthy," Rivers added. "He was terrific in the regular season, defensively, so he's going to be somewhat of that. But we don't have that one guy right now. Maybe that will come."
