The NBA has officially released the schedule for league resumption.
The league hopes to reel in viewers with a double-header of the Utah Jazz facing off against Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans followed up by LeBron James and the Lakers versus intracity rival Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers. Twenty-two teams will compete between July 30 and August 14. At least three days will feature seven games and each team will play one back-to-back contest. According to ESPN, “If a team is within four games of the eighth seed in a conference at the end of the seeding games, there will be a play-in tournament to determine the eighth playoff seed.”
