Celtics Announce 2022-23 Regular Season Schedule

BOSTON – The 17-time World Champion Boston Celtics today announced their schedule for the upcoming 2022-23 regular season. This season, the team and league will honor the life and legacy of Hall of Famer Bill Russell through a variety of celebrations. Beginning on October 18 against longtime division rival Philadelphia 76ers, the C’s will host the first of two dedicated Bill Russell tribute games celebrating the Celtics legend with a series of special activities. That night, the Celtics will unveil a special Bill Russell tribute 2022-23 City Edition uniform – a project that the league and team had been collaborating on with Russell himself in recent years - which they will wear a total of 12 times this season (six at home and six on the road). The Celtics will host the second tribute night on February 12, Russell’s birthday, against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Celtics, coming off of their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010, will have their first rematch of that series against the Golden State Warriors on December 10 in San Francisco. The team hosts the Warriors at TD Garden on January 19. The C’s will also get an early rematch of the 2022 Eastern Conference Finals on their first road trip of the season when they take on the Miami Heat on October 21.

The Celtics play on Christmas Day for the seventh consecutive season when they host their Eastern Conference Semifinals opponent the Milwaukee Bucks on December 25, serving as the third of five featured matchups chosen by the NBA for their Christmas Day slate.

The C’s will have a home-heavy schedule around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays as they will host a six-game homestand (Nov. 23 – Dec. 2) featuring matchups against the Dallas Mavericks on November 23, and then a two-game set against the Miami Heat on November 30 and December 2. The Celtics will have a season-long seven game homestand in December (Dec. 16 – Dec. 29) that will also see key offseason addition Malcolm Brogdon take on his former team the Indiana Pacers on December 21. The Celtics will close out the calendar year of 2022 with a home game against the LA Clippers on December 29.

The team hits the road for the majority of January as they play a season-high 10 road games during the month that include trips to 2022 First Round playoff opponent Brooklyn on January 12 and Miami on January 24. The Celtics welcome longtime rival, the Los Angeles Lakers, for their lone Saturday home game of the season on January 28 for a primetime game on ABC.

Boston will close out the 2022-23 season at home with a matinee game against the Atlanta Hawks on April 9.

The Celtics collaborated with East Boston native Nick Shea to assist in unveiling this year’s schedule. The local artist has created drawings of people in the Boston Common since 2017 as a simple way to make a difference in their days.

Hall of Fame play-by-play voice Mike Gorman and former Celtic Brian Scalabrine will be the lead voices calling all the action.  The network will also produce live pregame and postgame shows for every game this season, featuring former Celtics players, Eddie House and Kendrick Perkins. 

Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell will once again handle radio broadcast duties, calling all 82 of the regular season games live between 98.5 The Sports Hub, The Celtics Radio Network and 105.7 WROR.
