WALTHAM The NBA schedule isn't supposed to come out until Tuesday night, but that hasn't stopped its contents from being leaked in advance. reported yesterday that the C's will play at Miami on Dec. 27, just two days after opening the season at New York. And for those planning to see the Green Team as soon as the calendar flips, has learned you'll have to trek to the nation's capital as the Celtics play at Washington on Jan. 1.

In other Celtics-related scheduling news, the (Memphis, Tenn.) Commercial-Appeal reported that Boston would host former Celtic Tony Allen and the Memphis Grizzlies on Feb. 5.

And although no date was given, the Los Angeles Times reports that the Celtics and Lakers will each face the other on their respective home floor this season.

Because of the condensed 66-game schedule courtesy of the NBA lockout, there will be some teams that the Celtics won't face at all this season, or won't face nearly as often as they have in past years.
