Boston Celtics basketball officially is back.

The Celtics will tip off their 2016-17 regular season Wednesday night at TD Garden with a matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. Expectations are high in Boston after the team signed All-Star big man Al Horford this summer, while Brooklyn appears headed for another season of futility.

Here’s how to watch Celtics-Nets:

When: Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 7:30 p.m. ET
