Celtics' Orlando restart regular-season schedule released

By WEEI 93.7

Mark your calendars. The Celtics' march to the playoffs will resume Friday, July 31 against the Bucks.

The NBA released the official schedule for the eight remaining regular-season games for each team heading to the Orlando bubble on Friday night.

While the Celtics couldn't have asked for a tougher way to start, they actually make out pretty well on paper after that, as only two of their next seven games are against teams over .500.

That schedule could very well help bring the No. 2 seed into play for the C's. They're currently in third three games behind the Raptors, which is a lot to make up in eight games, but the Raptors have a much tougher schedule, as six of their eight games are against teams over .500.

Here is the full Celtics schedule, with all games being played at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando.

Friday, July 31 vs. Bucks, 6:30 p.m. ET (ESPN, NBCSB)

Sunday, Aug. 2 vs. Trail Blazers, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC, NBCSB)

Tuesday, Aug. 4 vs. Heat, 6:30 p.m. ET (TNT, NBCSB)

Wednesday, Aug. 5 vs. Nets, 9 p.m. ET (ESPN, NBCSB)

Friday, Aug. 7 vs. Raptors, 9 p.m. ET (TNT, NBCSB)

Sunday, Aug. 9 vs. Magic, 5 p.m. ET (NBCSB)

Tuesday, Aug. 11 vs. Grizzlies, 6:30 p.m. ET (TNT, NBCSB)

Thursday, Aug. 13 vs. Wizards, TBD (NBCSB)
