Report: Celtics to Take on LeBron James, Miami Heat in NBA Season Opener


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.
