While the Celtics’ starting five includes perennial NBA All-Stars Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, they weren’t even the first or second best team during practice on Wednesday. The first team was defeated by both the second- and third-team and had to run sprints after for losing twice.

“Defensively, we did a poor job,” Allen said. “Offensively, we didn’t help each other out. That is one of those days where we are only going to be better because our second team played pretty well and our third team beat us. We can’t just come in thinking we’re going to win.”
