Mullins Center To Host Celtics/76ers Preseason Game On Oct. 19

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Boston Celtics will play a preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers at the Mullins Center on Oct. 19, according to Global Spectrum, which manages the 10,500-seat sports and concert arena on the campus of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

This will be the second preseason match-up between the teams at the Amherst venue, which hosted them in October 2008.

The Sixers, who defeated the Celts, 98-92, in front of a capacity crowd in that October outing, will again have the home-court advantage this fall. The reason for the hometown status for an out-of-town team is simple: The Sixers and Global Spectrum are both owned by Comcast-Spectacor, an international entertainment and sports company.
