Avery Bradley goes back to the future

The buzz around Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley through two preseason games has been that he's found new ways to be more efficient offensively. From this vantage point, it simply seems like he's gone back to what originally put him on the NBA map.

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.

Call him 'Floor General Lee'
