Back-up point guard Avery Bradley  hit a baseline jumper as time expired to lift the Green team to a 52-51 win over the White in an intrasquad scrimmage for the Boston Celtics  Friday night before about 4,000 fans at TD Garden.
Rookie E’Twaun Moore ‘s three-pointer with 0.8 seconds remaining had given the white team, featuring Ray Allen  and Rajon Rondo  the lead before Bradley’s game-winning shot. A portly Mike Sweetney, weighing in at well over 320 pounds, put the White up, 48-46, with just over 50 seconds remaining as the two sides exchanged buckets in a furious finish before an appreciative crowd.
Rajon Rondo started for the White team, along with Ray Allen and Jermaine O’Neal  at center. Marquis Daniels  started for the Green while Chris Wilcox  started at center and took the opening tip for the Green.
The games were split into two 12-minute halves. The White trailed 27-18 at halftime before the Green, mostly stocked with reserves.
Wilcox led everyone at the scrimmage with 17 points and 10 rebounds, both game highs. Brandon Bass  started and led the White with 13 points and five rebounds. Bradley, Dooling and Daniels each played the entire 24 minutes of the scrimmage.
The game was highly entertaining and featured the first look for fans at newcomers Wilcox, Bass, Moore, Keyon Dooling  – who made all three of his 3-point attempts.
After the scrimmage, coach Doc Rivers  said there was no medical update on the condition of Jeff Green , who failed his physical earlier in the week. He visited with doctors on Friday with team President and general manager Danny Ainge. WEEI.com’s Paul Flannery reported after the game that an announcement  is expected sometime Saturday.
The Celtics open their brief two-game preseason schedule Sunday in Toronto, with the two teams playing in Boston on Wednesday night.
Paul Pierce  will not make the trip to Toronto while Kevin Garnett  is questionable after injuring his thumb on Thursday in practice. Rivers said after Friday night’s scrimmage that the X-rays were negative.
