Celtics-T'Wolves to play in Montreal

The SportsXchange

The Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves will play at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Oct. 20 as part of the NBA's second annual NBA Canada Series.

The Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks played in last season's game in Montreal, while the Timberwolves and Detroit Pistons played in Winnipeg. The series is designed to develop the game in Canada. A second potential game during the 2013-14 season has not been announced.

"The NBA Canada Series captures the unique experience of a live NBA game for our fans outside of Toronto, and helps fuel the increasing interest in our game across the country," said Dan MacKenzie, Vice President and General Manager, NBA Canada. "Montreal is a great sporting city and we look forward to returning this year with another exciting match-up."

The Celtics are also familiar with playing outside of the U.S., having opened the preseason last year in Turkey and Italy as part of NBA Europe Live.
