The Boston Celtics played their first Christmas Day game back in 1948. They lost at Philadelphia

In total, the C's have played 30 times on Christmas - every game on the road.

Until today.

For the very first time, there will be a NBA game on the parquet on this holiday.

And, the opponent is Washington. The Wizards and Celts battled in a long, seven game series in the playoffs a year ago with the C's winning 4-3.

This should be interesting.
