Jeff Green also had 17 points off the bench for Boston.

Green missed all of last season after a physical exam revealed an aortic aneurysm. He underwent surgery and became a free agent before re-signing with the Celtics in August.

On Friday in Istanbul, Fenerbahce Ulker beat the Celtics 97-91.

The Celtics return to Boston on Monday and resume practice Thursday before playing their first U.S. preseason game against the New York Knicks in Hartford, Conn., next weekend.
