Beginning of 2019-20 schedule projects to be easy

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

In the first two games of the season, the Lakers will play a highly anticipated matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers as the road team. March 16 - This time the Warriors return to Toronto.

There is a reasonable chance shooting guard Klay Thompson will be in the Golden State lineup following his recovery from a torn ACL against the Raptors in the Finals.

The team will embark on two five-game road trips (Nov. 8-16 and March 1-9) and the longest homestand is four games from February 21-28, which includes one of two appearances by reigning league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks.

Toronto is scheduled to make 11 US national television appearances - six on ESPN and five on TNT.

If Boston Celtics rookie forward Grant Williams hasn't already carved a shamrock-shaped space in your heart with how he's embraced his new team, the Tennessee product ought to after how he described what he thinks of this season's Boston Celtics roster.

James, 34, posted good numbers previous year - his first with the Lakers - but, he struggled with a groin injury that limited him to 55 games and his team missed the playoffs for the first time since 2004-05.

In all, there were 57 games on national television starting at 10:30 p.m. last season. The fact that Celtics president Danny Ainge and company have assembled a team full of such players - many just entering the league - is quite an antidote from the leadership black hole at the heart of last season's roster. No team will play eight games in 12 days, either, though there are 19 instances of teams having to play five times in a span of seven days. The final nine games of the season will feature seven teams expected to be in the playoffs, and another against Sacramento who could very well be in the hunt as well. The playoffs start April 18.

Other key dates on the schedule, according to Charania, include Davis facing his former team, the New Orleans Pelicans, on November 27, Kyrie Irving's return to Boston on the same night and Russell Westbrook's return to Oklahoma City on January 9.

The Celtics' season tips off on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers on October 23. December 14 - Kyrie Irving makes first appearance as a member of the Brooklyn Nets.
