Connecticut Celtics fans rejoice! Your beloved team is returning to Hartford for the first time in nearly 14 years. Tickets went on sale Monday for a preseason game with the Toronto Raptors, which will be held at the XL Center on Oct. 14.
Former UConn star Ray Allen will come back home to lead his team along with Celtics megastars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. The team has also recently signed NBA powerhouse Rasheed Wallace. The game will be the first in Hartford for the Celtics since a preseason game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers on Oct. 18, 1995.
Tickets are priced from $15 to $75, and can be purchased at the XL Center box office or through Ticketmaster.
14 years, huh?
It seems more like 20 years.
