Lakers at Warriors
Bucks at Knicks
Knicks? Guess the NBA want to get those New York viewers for ratings.

In Boston or Philly?

Wonder if that means we draw LA on opening night? I could see that happening with the NBA trying its darndest to restart that rivalry.

A Christmas blowout game in LA will be funny, too 😂

I don't think there's any way we'll have the same matchup opening day and Xmas so the rumors are contradictory. I figure we'll get the Lakers whichever time we don't get Philly. Lakers-Celtics and Rockets-Warriors really seems like a dynamite opening night but they usually try to do one all-East and one all-West.

I'm surprised but not surprised that the Knicks got the noon game that's almost always awful because the Knicks get it all the time. I figured they were still too bad and low on national stars and they'd do Bucks-Sixers there instead.

Portland @ Utah as well

What??

At Portland would make more sense to me - the late late game at 10:30 Eastern usually starts in the Pacific Time Zone and the Lakers+Warriors get more prominent timeslots, so Portland gets a lot of those games.

Awesome.

Let's have Kyrie, Hayward and Co. give them a nice shiny Green choker.

I think it would be a little OD to have us play our two marquee games against the same team. I get trying to build a rivalry but this is kinda forcing it down everyone’s throat. Either Opening Night or Christmas Day.... I would prefer to play the Lakers Christmas.

Seriously? The Knicks? Just replace that game with Spurs-Raptors man and you'll get some views.

Thunder/Rockets look redundant. Westbrook/PG13 vs Harden/CP3? Meh.

They really should stop with the LeBron/Warriors rivalry on Christmas it's getting old. I was expecting Celtics @ Lakers.

76ers-Celtics...bleh lol. I'd be fine with that on opening night, but this ain't dynamic enough.

Don't even get me started with the pathetic Blazers and the first-time Jazz appearance.

This year's Christmas schedule sucks imo.

I’m not buying the Sixers on both opening night and Christmas.  Makes much more sense opeining night.

yeah, that part doesn't make much sense to me either.  honestly I wonder why Toronto isn't considered for one of those games since some of the 'experts' are pegging them as winning the east.

Though Lebron may not be there anymore, I could see a Cavs-Celtics opening night due to the fact that both made the ECF last year.

Seeing Kyrie go up against Sexton could be fun.

Would be awesome if he torched Sexton like he did DSJ (47 points on .727/.714/.909 shooting, including 10 in OT) ;D

It would be even more awesome if that game didn’t go into overtime.
