Heat to host Celtics to open title defense in 2012-13. An sneak peak at the Heat's schedule. sunsent.nl/OjsGN4 sulia.com/c/miami-heat/f…— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) July 23, 2012
According to Ira Winderman at the Sun Sentinel, the 2012-2013 NBA season kicks off with the Boston Celtics facing the Heat in Miami on October 30th. David Stern couldn't have picked a better match-up. It's loaded with drama. You've got the ring ceremony finally crowning LeBron James with an NBA championship in front of the only team to take the NBA defending champs to the brink in seven games. You've got a rebuilt Celtics squad that's now ten deep with grizzled vets and promising young players backing them up. Oh, and you've got Benedict Allen facing his old team. I can already picture TNT's "We Know Drama" promotion. It's mid July and my blood's already boiling.
Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics! Let's go, Celtics!
