Article Summary:

We already knew some key dates on the calendar, as the NBA announced the Christmas Day slate of games on Tuesday, in addition to the two opening night games when the season starts on Oct. 19. The first of those classic matchups will be between the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors on Nov. 1, to mark the 75th anniversary to date of when the NBA held its first regular season game. The league will also have three nationally televised games that day, with the Memphis Grizzlies hosting the Chicago Bulls at 3:30 p.m. ET, followed by the Bucks visiting the Hawks in Atlanta and closing out the full day of games will be the Jazz playing the Lakers at Staples Center on NBA TV.

Other highlights from the NBA schedule include Kyle Lowry’s return to Toronto on Feb. 3 on TNT to face the Raptors for the first time since the six-time All-Star joined the Miami Heat in free agency. The top two picks from the 2021 NBA Draft – Cade Cunningham and Jalen Green – will face off for the first time in their NBA careers when the Detroit Pistons visit the Houston Rockets on Nov. 10.
