Certainly should be an entertaining day of basketball.

We now have two reported dates of Celtics-76ers, with Boston expected to battle Philly on Opening Night on Oct. 16.

Of course, the rivalry between the two teams is heating back up, with the Celtics dispatching Philly in just five games in the second round of the NBA playoffs this past season. Both teams have exciting young cores and are expected to be perennial contenders for quite some time.
