Pacers jab Celtics with humorous Netflix-themed NBA schedule tweet




 

The NBA schedule for the 2019-20 regular season was released Monday, and teams around the league tried to come up with clever ways of giving that information to their fans.

The Indiana Pacers used a Netflix-themed "now streaming" approach where they picked a show or movie that had some kind of connection to each team in the league.

The Pacers' choice for the Celtics was appropriate given the long list of players who have departed from Boston since the end of the 2018-19 season.

In fairness to the Pacers, "The Departed" really is an iconic Boston movie.

A few Celtics fans were quick to remind the Pacers on Twitter that Boston swept Indiana in the first round of the 2019 playoffs, but that fact doesn't take away from the humor in these tweets. It's all in good fun.

On a more serious note, the return of Kyrie Irving and Al Horford -- who left Boston in free agency for the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers, respectively -- will be two of the most-anticipated games on the NBA calendar next season.
