The Celtics’ Big Three will begin next year’s season facing off against Miami‚Äôs new Big Three.

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat will make their regular-season debut against the NBA’s reigning Big 3 at the TD Garden.

The Heat will open the 2010-11 season against the Boston Celtics on Oct. 26, according to the NBA.
