This year's season will formally begin on October 22 when the Toronto Raptors receive their rings in their home opener against the New Orleans Pelicans, followed by a first look at the revamped rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. Immediately after taking on Toronto in Boston, the Celtics will travel to NY for their first game against the Knicks. This year the league averaged is 12.4 back-to-backs per team.

The number would surely have been higher had Kawhi stayed, but the Raptors will still appear 11 times on US national television, including six on ESPN.

The 2019-20 National Basketball Association schedule will be revealed today live on ESPN's The Jump on TSN3, TSN4 and TSN Direct at 3pm et/Noon pt.

The league announced its 2019-20 schedule on Monday, featuring another dip in back-to-back games for teams and a major change in the number of nationally televised games starting at 10:30 p.m. on the East coast. That number falls to 33 this season, a dip of 42 percent.

The stretches of four games in five days might be gone for good. One that many players don't necessarily make in their second or third seasons. Lakers come to Boston on January 20, Martin Luther King Day, which is always a special occasion in the NBA.Breaking tradition, the Celtics will not play at home on the afternoon of Super Bowl Sunday.
