Celtics Home Opener Unofficially Announced as Dec. 30 Against Pistons

Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reported Tuesday that the Celtics’ Home opener will be against the Detroit Pistons on Dec. 30. This will be the first time the Celtics take the court in the TD Banknorth Garden during this upcoming, shortened NBA season.

The Celtics won three out of four meetings with the Pistons last season. Detroit went 30-52 last season, and they are expected that they will finish in the bottom half of the conference again this year. Fourth-year combo guard Rodney Stuckey led the 2010-11 Pistons, averaging a team-high 15.5 points and 5.2 assists in 70 appearances.

On paper this game looks like kind of a weak home opener, but there is one storyline of interest. How can we forget last season’s accusations by Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva that Kevin Garnett called him a “Cancer Patient?” Those guys hate each other; that should be fun to watch.

The full NBA schedule for all teams for the 2011-2012 season will be announced tonight at 7pm on NBA TV. We’ll have full coverage of the Celtics’ schedule when it is announced.
