Orlando may have the first crack at the "Three Kings" in Miami, but the Heat will be coming to Boston first.
According to the Miami Herald, the Celtics-Heat game on Oct. 26 will be the NBA season opener, part of a doubleheader on TNT. The second game will feature the Los Angeles Lakers.
Reports on Monday had implied that Orlando-Miami would be the season debut.
The Celtics eliminated the Heat in the opening round of the playoffs this past season, but they will be facing a much different foe this time around.
