One that didn't make the list: Boston's second game of the year, when the Celtics visit the Bulls for Chicago's opener. Here's what I wrote for ESPN.com's Celtics Summer Forecast regarding the most intriguing matchup on the schedule:
It's the first TNT game of the season and the whole country will be watching. Not only that, but it's also the debut of the new Dwyane Wade (and Rajon Rondo!) Bulls. Plus, Boston will be tested with the second night of a back-to-back on the road right out of the gates, a situation it has excelled in under [Brad] Stevens. Assuming the Celtics handle Brooklyn in their opener, this will be a chance to immediately establish themselves as one of the East's elite.
