The full NBA schedule is set to be released today during a special on NBA TV at 6 p.m EST, but if you’re familiar with Marc J. Spears and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports then you know they’ve already gotten their hands on the games we’ll want to watch.

For instance, the Christmas Day games feature the most competitive teams in the league and those that have the most drama and biggest back story against each other.  For the 2014-15 season, the five Christmas games are:

  • Washington Wizards @ New York Knicks
  • Oklahoma City Thunder @ San Antonio Spurs
  • Cleveland Cavaliers @ Miami Heat
  • L.A. Lakers @ Chicago Bulls
  • Golden State Warriors @ L.A. Clippers

Other key games include:

  • LeBron James first game back with the Cleveland Cavaliers will be against Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks on Oct. 30.
  • The Cavs will then play the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on Oct. 31
  • The NBA’s 2014-15 season officially opens on Oct. 28 with the defending champion San Antonio Spurs playing the Dallas Mavericks at the AT&T Center and the Houston Rockets visiting the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center.

That’s just a few of the games we have to look forward to.  As I said before check out the whole schedule at 6pm on NBA TV.
