Celtics vs. Hornets live stream: Watch preseason opener online


The Boston Celtics are finally back.

The C's open their preseason schedule Sunday afternoon against the Charlotte Hornets at TD Garden.

The last time we saw the Celtics was Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals, when the Golden State Warriors won their fourth championship in eight seasons. A lot has changed for the Celtics since that time. They have a new head coach and a couple new players, including Malcolm Brogdon and recently signed Blake Griffin.

What hasn't changed is the Celtics' determination to win Banner 18. The hard work resumes Sunday against LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier and a talented Hornets squad.
