Boston Celtics defeat Real Madrid 111-96 in preseason play overseas. Quick postgame 3-pointer: * Avery Bradley finally missed a 3-pointer (he’s 7-for-8 this preseason) but put up a team-high 17 points over 21 minutes. * David Lee was questionable due to illness. Instead, he started and put up a double-double (13 pts, 11 reb) and showcased his passing skills again. * Celtics rookies — especially Terry Rozier (14 points) — were excellent in 4th quarter against Madrid regulars.
