As expected, the Celtics will visit MSG to take on the Knicks on Christmas Day. The rematch of last year’s first round playoff series will be the very first game of the 2011-12 NBA season. Tip-off is at noon EST (Marv Albert is on the call, for those of you who geek out about these kinds of things).
Following C’s-Knicks, four more games are on the slate:
Miami @ Dallas
Chicago @ L.A. Lakers
Orlando @ Oklahoma City
L.A. Clippers @ Golden State
The full 2011-12 schedule will be released on Tuesday, December 6 at 7 p.m. EST. CelticsHub will have a breakdown on it later that night.
In anticipation of December 25, let’s revisit one of the best regular season games from 2010-11: this C’s-Knicks game from last December.
