False start for Kemba: Kemba Walker has some big shoes to fill in Boston but he came out misfiring in his debut as a Celtic. The 6-footer failed to get to the rim all night against the Sixers size and couldn’t connect from the perimeter consistently, mustering just 12 points on 4-of-18 shooting, (1-of-6 from 3-pt). He failed to make much of an impact in other facets of the game (two rebounds, two assists) as he struggled to find his spots on the offensive end. Boston managed to hang around in the first half but they failed to keep pace with the Sixers in the second half as he finished the game with just two points on 1-of-9 shooting after intermission.
A sputtering offense: Walker wasn’t the only one struggling for Boston’s offense
