It started off as Marcus Smart getting knocked to the floor, but then something crazy happened that went viral in an instant.
The Celtics' preseason schedule has not yet been released, but the Charlotte Hornets announced a matchup with Boston in late September.

The game will be held on The University of North Carolina's campus in the Dean E. Smith Center on September 28th.
Boston played Charlotte twice in last year's preseason, where the Celtics won both games.
It is not clear whether this game will be Boston's first chance to play with a fully healthy roster for the first time in nearly a year, but we are at least 74 days away from Celtics basketball again.
