Celtics 2011-12 schedule

12.06.11 at 9:56 pm ET
By

At long last the Celtics schedule for the 2011-12 season has been released. With 66 games in a tight window there are some irregularities in this lockout shortened season. The Celtics will have 18 back-to-backs, but only one of the dreaded back-to-back-to-backs. They will have 11 of 16 games at home in January and then five straight and seven of their first eight at TD Garden to begin February.

The month of March will be a different story with an eight-game road trip, including five on the west coast. April will also feature five games on the road in the span of the week with their back-to-back-to-back coupled with a five-games-in-six-night stretch.

Fans in Boston won’t get a chance to see Denver, Golden State, the Clippers, Minnesota, New Orleans or Sacramento. Those six won’t make the trip to the Garden this year. In other words, no Blake Griffin. The C’s won’t travel to Houston, Memphis, Phoenix, Portland, San Antonio or Utah. They will see the Lakers, Mavericks and Thunder twice.
