Report: Warriors-Celtics rematches set for December, January


Marquee games on the Warriors' 2022-23 NBA schedule are trickling out ahead of the reported full release on Wednesday, and we now know when they will face the Boston Celtics during the upcoming season.

The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Monday night, citing sources, that the Warriors and Celtics will play on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Chase Center in San Francisco and then meet again on Thursday, Jan. 19 at TD Garden in Boston.

With both teams largely bringing back the same rosters as the ones that met in the 2022 NBA Finals, both games should be epic rematches of the six-game series won by the Warriors.

The tension from the heated series spilled over into the offseason, with Celtics forward Grant Williams confidently saying Boston was the better team in the Finals even though the Warriors won the final three games, including two on the road. Williams then traded barbs with Steph Curry, who roasted the big man while hosting the ESPY awards show in July.

Now the two teams will get to rekindle the rivalry early in the upcoming season.

The Warriors reportedly will open the 2022-23 season on Oct. 18 at home against the Los Angeles Lakers, where they will receive their championship rings and raise their fourth banner in eight years.

The NBA's Christmas Day lineup reportedly will feature the Warriors hosting the Memphis Grizzlies in a rematch of their second-round playoff series.
