The Celtics preseason schedule — aka a list of games that have 0.00002% chance of being played — came out yesterday. Just in case:
Oct. 10 vs. Philadelphia 76ers at Dunkin Donuts Center (Providence, R.I.), 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 15 at N.Y. Knicks at Times Union Center (Albany, N.Y.), 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 16 at Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre (Toronto), 6 p.m.
Oct. 19 at Philadelphia 76ers at Mullins Center (Amherst, Mass.), 7 p.m.
Oct. 21 vs. Toronto Raptors at TD Garden, 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 22 vs. N.Y. Knicks at XL Center (Hartford, Conn.), 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 24 at New Jersey Nets at Prudential Center (Newark, N.J.), 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 26 vs. New Jersey Nets at TD Garden, 7:30 p.m.
I normally head to the Mullins Center whenever the Celtics play there, but, well, call me a skeptic.
