New York, NY (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Timberwolves will play a preseason game against the Boston Celtics at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Oct. 20 as part of the NBA's second annual NBA Canada Series.
The Timberwolves defeated the Detroit Pistons at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg last October as part of the inaugural NBA Canada Series. The Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks played in last season's game in Montreal.
"The NBA Canada Series captures the unique experience of a live NBA game for our fans outside of Toronto, and helps fuel the increasing interest in our game across the country," said Dan MacKenzie, vice president and general manager, NBA Canada. "Montreal is a great sporting city and we look forward to returning this year with another exciting match-up."
