We are two months away from more hoop action…
We are only months away from NBA season tip-off and we’re already looking forward to notable matchups from the upcoming season. Christmas Day will be filled with much more joy as an NBA final rematch with the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers will take place. Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder will take on Chris Paul and his Houston Rockets and with the last match-up Lonzo Ball and the Minnesota Timberwolves will compete in a battle. The opening day is on October 17th, where 2 games will take place with the Rockets vs the Warriors being the headline game of the night. Teams and analysts are ready to see what incoming rookies like Markelle Futz and Lonzo Ball have to offer for the upcoming season. This season will most definitely offer star power galore and an abundance of sports-center top plays.
Even on Martin Luther King Jr. Day the NBA has blessed us with a jam packed session as Chris Paul will return back to LA as a Houston Rocket and not a Clipper. We will also witness yet another NBA final rematch of the Cleveland Cavaliers vs the Golden State Warriors. Demarcus Cousins will also return back to Sacramento after being traded to the New Orleans Pelicans last season.
