ML Tries Antoine at the Point

Antoine Walker's First Year in Green

The subject was Antoine Walker . Before the question could be completed, ``Do you think Antoine can guard point gu- . . .,'' M.L. Carr was emphatically nodding his head.

Walker tried to do exactly that yesterday in practice. The Celtics were going over defensive drills. A few times, the 6-foot-9-inch rookie was matched against point man David Wesley, a 6-footer. Sometimes Walker stayed with him; other times he was a step off. But he never looked overmatched.

Ditto on offense. He took over a scrimmage, scoring on 15-footers and two fabulous drives to the hoop.

``Hey,'' Carr said with a grin, ``Antoine can play.''
