Celtics and T-wolves to play game in Montreal

In David Stern’s effort to make the NBA a more international league, the Celtics and Timberwolves will meet for a preseason game in our friendly neighbors to the north. According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald's twitter account:

Interesting location given the heated rivalry between the Montreal Canadians and the Boston Bruins. It’s just a preseason game so it won’t affect us as it’s pretty close to the opening of the regular season. Maybe they’re trying to scout homes for new franchises in Canada and want to see how Montreal reacts to the NBA?
