Key dates revealed as Celtics’ 2013-14 schedule announced
Celtics fans will have to wait a while before getting their next glimpse of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
The NBA released its schedule for the 2013-14 season, revealing several high-profile matchups for the Celtics. One of them will be Boston’s first time hosting the Brooklyn Nets, who traded for Pierce and Garnett in the offseason and who will visit the TD Garden Jan. 26. It will be the second game between the Celtics and Nets, as they’ll also meet in Brooklyn Dec. 10.
Another familiar face returns Dec. 11, when new Clippers Coach Doc Rivers comes back to the Garden as a visitor. The season will begin Oct. 30 in Toronto, and the home opener will be two nights later, Nov. 1, against the Milwaukee Bucks.
