Oh, Canada!: Wolves to play Boston in preseason game at Montreal

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves news Updated: June 11, 2013 - 8:00 AM

The Wolves will play a preseason game in Canada this fall for the second consecutive season, and this time they'll play Boston in an Oct. 20 game in Montreal that's part of the NBA's "Canada Series."

Last fall, the Wolves thumped Detroit in a game in Winnipeg.

This time, the Wolves and Celtics play at Bell Centre, home otherwise to hockey and the Montreal Canadiens.

Toronto and New York play there last October, in a game that kicked off the NBA's series and its attempt to grow the game up north beyond Toronto and the reach of the Raptors.

The Celtics opened their preseason last season with a trip to Turkey and Italy.
