The rough draft of the NBA schedule has been submitted to teams across the league, which has resulted in some leaks ahead of the expected official release date next Friday. The Celtics have been involved in a pair of games revealed so far, including the return of Kyrie Irving to Boston as a member of the Brooklyn Nets on November 27th in what figures to be the hottest ticket at the TD Garden next year. The Wednesday night matchup before Thanksgiving figures to be a nationally televised doubleheader with Anthony Davis also making his return to New Orleans on the same night as a member of the Lakers.
The Celtics will also hit the road on Christmas for the first time during the Brad Stevens era with a December 25th showdown with the defending champions in Toronto. A full look at the slate on that day, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com:
