There may still be a couple of months left until the start of the 2018-19 NBA season, but the excitement has already begun. Fans are pumped after some big free agency moves, and now they’re starting to get a sense of what the upcoming season will entail. That began earlier this week with the release of over/under win total projections by Las Vegas sports books, and now it’s continued with the slow rollout of the upcoming schedule.
We likely won’t see the full schedule for a bit, but we do have some info on the games schedule for important dates like opening night and Christmas Day. As we prepare for the release, let’s go over a few things we know about the schedule.
NBA season-openers, opening week schedule
Last season, the start date was moved up from the fourth week in October to the third week in an effort to decrease back-to-backs and eliminate four-game-in-five-night scenarios. The league typically begins play on a Tuesday, and once again that is the case, with opening night set for Tuesday, Oct. 16.
Here is the entire national TV schedule for opening week.
Opening night, October 16:
- Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics, 8 p.m. ET
- Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m. ET
- New Orleans Pelicans at Houston Rockets, 8 p.m. ET
- Dallas Mavericks at Article source: https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/nba-2018-19-schedule-release-christmas-day-season-opener-mlk-day-and-lebrons-first-lakers-home-game/
