2020 NBA restart: Celtics' three-game scrimmage schedule in Orlando revealed
By Darren Hartwell July 05, 2020 11:30 AM

https://www.nbcsports.com/boston/celtics/2020-nba-restart-celtics-three-game-scrimmage-schedule-orlando-revealed
Here's Boston's three-game scrimmage schedule in the bubble:

Friday, July 24
Celtics vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (5 p.m. ET)

Sunday, July 26
Celtics vs. Phoenix Suns (1:30 p.m. ET)

Tuesday, July 28
Celtics vs. Houston Rockets (8 p.m. ET)

The C's face three Western Conference opponents who aren't on their eight-game "seeding round" slate. Their final tune-up against James Harden, Russell Westbrook and the Rockets should be entertaining, although it's possible each team's starters play limited minutes as squads shake off the rust.

The NBA plans to release "potential" broadcast details at a later date, so it's unclear whether any of these games will be televised

Exhibitions start with a four-game slate Wednesday and continue through July 28. Each team will play three exhibitions, and the last two for each club will have the traditional 12-minute quarters. Plans call for all 33 exhibitions to be televised by some combination of local TV, national TV, NBA TV or NBA League Pass.

I know it's a meaningless scrimmage game, but CRUSH THEM. Never forget. I want payback for this:

League Pass has the scrimmage games on schedule. If I wake up at 5am this Saturday and don't get to watch the game, I will raise hell.

Finally it pays off. It has been a near-useless feature with so many nationally televised games now.

I'm having a tough time wrapping my head around getting to watch these guys in action this week.

Kemba still out has to be concerning after all that time off, I think that knee is going to be a problem.

Side note: I can't believe there's an actual NBA game to be played/watched in about 13 hours. In the middle of a pandemic. I will just try to enjoy it. Get a break from doing nothing lol.

Not happy that Kemba is not playing.
This is really becoming disconcerting.

Really such a bad luck thing. After 4 months, I can't believe that it's only load-managment, etc.

Joakim Noah is a good addition that that Clippers roster.
He's coming in and playing really well, in his position.
