Coach Brad Stephens and his UMass basketball players will head to China for a game against the Beijing Warriors on Wednesday night, according to a tweet by the Boston Celtics.
The game will be broadcast live on CSN-Boston.
The Celtics are ranked No. 4 in the AP Poll, just below the No. 2 Boston Celtics and No. 3 Golden State Warriors.
It’s the first time the two teams will play in Beijing since 2010, when the Celtics won 94-82.
It will be the first meeting between the Celtics and the Warriors since the 2009-10 season, when they played a pair of games in Beijing.
The game will air on CSNNE, and the NBA will also stream it live on its YouTube channel.
