◼️ The NBA makes public some of the most interesting matches of the regular phase of the 2018-19 season.
The NBA has made official the highlights of its regular season, which correspond to Christmas Day, Martin Luther King Day and the season opener of all teams. These are the games that the League wants to sell the most in its ‘regular season’.
The 2018-19 season will start with a two-match day, known as the TV double-header (TNT). Tuesday, October 16 will start with a Celtics-76ers (20:00ET), as in the semifinals of the Eastern Conference a few months ago, and with a Warriors-Thunder (22:30ET), which will continue the curiosity of seeing Kevin Durant in front of his ex-team and against his archenemy Westbrook.

During the first week we will see some strong matches such as the Pelicans (Wednesday 17 at 2:00 at the Rockets), the Lakers (Thursday 18 at 4:30 at the Blazers’ home), the Raptors (Friday 19 at 2:00 in Toronto) or the Jazz (Friday 19 at 4:30 in Utah), as well as the interesting duel with Ayton and Doncic in the background between the Suns and the Mavericks (to be disputed 17/10 at 4:30 am).
Martin Luther King day is the one that changes the most since it used to develop along with more than five games spread throughout the day and now it remains with just three: Grizzlies-Pelicans, 76ers-Rockets, and Lakers-Warriors.
The Christmas games had already been filtered and these are: Knicks-Bucks, Rockets-Thunder, Celtics-76ers, Warriors-Lakers, and Jazz-Blazers.
NBA on Christmas Day should be 🔥
