Celtics 2012-13 schedule is set
The NBA schedule was released on NBA TV last night in typical game show splendor, and Jason Terry already needed someone to hold him back.
The new Celtics [team stats] guard, asked by the NBA TV crew to look ahead to the Celtics’ season opener in Miami on Oct. 30, immediately went for the matchup everyone is already dissecting.
“Must-see TV — it will be me against Ray (Allen),” the Celtics guard said of the player he is replacing. “The other guys can sit down. It will be a 3-point shooting contest.”
It helps that the Celtics will once again ease into their schedule with a lot of time at home in November, with nine of their 15 games that month at the Garden. Some heavy hitters will walk through the Garden doors that month, including San Antonio on Nov. 21, Oklahoma City on Nov. 23 and Brooklyn on Nov. 28.
