NBA teams often hold preseason games in other arenas throughout their region to boost their exposure.

The Celtics, for example, have preseason games throughout New England – in Hartford and Uncasville, Conn.; Portland, Maine; and Boston. Tonight’s game against the Raptors was in Portland.

If Raptors rookie Bruno Caboclo is mysterious to us, American geography and the preseason schedule is foreign to the Brazilian.

Bruno, if you think Portland, Maine, is something, wait until you see Boston. It’ll blow your mind.

For what it’s worth, Caboclo is probably in no hurry to return to Portland. He missed all four of his shots.
