Bummed out about the lockout? Miss watching the Celtics play? Well, listen up!

No, the lockout hasn't ended.

But basketball will be played in Boston this Saturday, Nov. 19th -- and a lot of your favorite Celtics will be a part of the game.

Rajon Rondo is hosting the Boston Charity Classic, with proceeds benefitting local Boston charities providing holiday meals and sport to families in the Boston area.

Scheduled participants in the game include Rondo, Paul Pierce, Glen Davis, Marquis Daniels, Josh Smith, Kendrick Perkins, Rudy Gay, Leon Powe, Jeff Green, Kevin Durant, JaJuan Johnson, Jeremy Lin and Kyle Lowry among others.

That's right, Perkins will be back in Boston playing with his old friends Rondo, Pierce, Davis, Daniels, and Powe. And he brings current teammate and NBA superstar Durant along with him.

Don't forget about C's rookie JaJuan Johnson and Harvard alum Jeremy Lin either.

The game is going to be held at Lavietes Pavilion at Harvard University, with tipoff scheduled for 6:00 pm.

Tickets will be available to the public Tuesday, November 15th and can be purchased through the Harvard Athletics Box office either in person or via phone. Box office hours are 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Tickets are 50 for general admission, 100 for courtside seating, and parking is 10 at the arena.
