In an exhibition game vs. the Knicks, the Boston Celtics were down by 23 points with eight minutes to play on Wednesday night. Then, Chris Babb checked in. The Knicks went on to win the game 103-102, but Babb left his mark.
The former Cyclones went 4-for-6 from the field (4-for-5) from 3-point range and recorded 12 points in his NBA debut. The stats were great, but what head coach Brad Stevens said after the game about Babb was even better.
“Chris Babb has been one of the best workers, had one of the best attitudes, and been one of the best teammates in there from Day 1," Stevens said. "So it’s not a shock at all that he went in and did what he did. We have been huge fans of his since he walked in the building."
Babb was the first training camp invitee to see action in the preseason for Boston. Right now, things are looking very positive for the former Cyclone when it comes to making the team.
