The NBA has announced the Celtics will open the NBA postseason with a matinee showdown with the New York Knicks Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. The game will begin at 3 p.m. and will likely be televised nationally on ABC or ESPN.
The full schedule will be released later today after the West Coast game ends, but here is an educated guess (based around the schedule of the Bruins at the TD Garden) of when Games 1-4 will be played. We will announce the finalized schedule here at CelticsHub when it is released.
Educated guess at First Round Schedule
Game 1: Saturday in NY
Game 2: Tuesday in NY
Game 3: Friday in BOS
Game 4: Sunday afternoon in BOS
