The Boston Celtics’ slate of 2022-23 preseason games will include one of several
exhibition contests played in Canada that are part of the NBA Canada series of friendlies scheduled
to take place north of the US this fall. Per the league in an official release,
the Celtics’ October 14 tilt against the Toronto Raptors at Montreal (Quebec)’s Bell Centre
will compliment an October 2 game between the Raps and Utah Jazz in Edmonton, Alberta.
The first time the series has been held since 2019, it will be on the 10-year anniversary of the first iteration of the NBA Canada
series, which has seen 14 NBA teams participate in 14 preseason games across five provinces of Canada over that
decade with a total attendance of over a quarter of a million Canadians.
“We’re excited to bring Celtics basketball to fans in Montreal
as part of NBA Canada Series,” said Boston Celtics President Rich Gotham in the release.
