Despite being in the midst of a lockout with no end in sight, the league released its schedule for the 2011-12 season. Assuming there is a season, these are some of the highlights of the Celtics’ schedule.

As they have for the last three seasons, the Celtics will be part of the annual Christmas Day marathon with a noon date at Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks. The Celtics have been in Orlando the last two seasons. They will have a prime time game at home against Oklahoma City on Martin Luther King Day, another showcase day for the league.

The Celtics make only one trip to Miami on Nov. 16 and then host a pair of games with them on Dec. 1 and April 1. They host the Lakers on Feb. 9 on a TNT Thursday night game and visit Los Angeles for a 3:30 Sunday game on March 11. They open the season with a home game against the Cavaliers on Nov. 2.

Here’s the rest of the schedule (all times are Eastern Standard):
