Boston Celtics Release Preseason Schedule

The Boston Celtics unveiled their eight-game preseason schedule for the coming season yesterday, giving NBA fans tingles all over.

Some unique aspects of the schedule include a game at their NBA D-League affiliates  place in Maine, as well as two games in Connecticut, one in Hartford and the other at the Mohegan Sun Casino in good ole’ Uncasville.

Here is how the preseason shakes out for the Celtics:

Oct. 6       Philadelphia 76ers        TD Garden (Boston)      7:30 p.m. ET

Oct. 8       New York Knicks            XL Center (Hartford, Conn.)     7:30 p.m. ET

Oct. 10     Toronto Raptors             Air Canada Centre (Toronto)     7 p.m. ET

Oct. 11     New York Knicks            Mohegan Sun Arena (Uncasville, Conn.)   7:30 p.m. ET

Oct. 15     Toronto Raptors             Cross Insurance Arena (Portland, Maine)   7:30 p.m. ET

Oct. 16     Philadelphia 76ers       Wells Fargo Center (Philadelphia)       7 p.m. ET

Oct. 19     Brooklyn Nets                Barclays Center (Brooklyn, N.Y.)     3 p.m. ET

Oct. 22     Brooklyn Nets                TD Garden (Boston)      7:30 p.m. ET

We will get out first experience watching the Rajon Rondo-Marcus Smart experiment, as well as seeing what James Young looks like on the court with some NBA-level talent. In addition, the final roster spots will be fought over by Chris Babb and Chris Johnson, and Tyler Zeller will try to fit in with the starters for the first time.

Danny Ainge and Brad Stephens have a lot of work to do this upcoming season and the first act begins with these eight-games before the regular season.
