    Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo and New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony will compete in Hartford in a preseason game.

    Whether you’re a Celtics fan or a Knicks fan will not matter on Oct. 22. The regional rivals will faceoff in Hartford at the XL Center for a preseason game.

    Since the Celtics have former UConn greats, Ray Allen, it’s also a good excuse for Husky fans to head into the city for a night of professional basketball.

    Tickets are $140, $100, $75, $45, $35 and $25 and you can buy tickets from Ticketmaster or through the XL Center’s Web site. Tickets go on sale at the XL Center Ticket Office on Monday at noon,
