The schedule for the 2019/20 NBA regular season, officially unveiled by the league on Monday, will – for the fifth consecutive year – feature the fewest back-to-backs in league history. On average, teams will play on consecutive nights 12.4 times in ’19/20, down from 13.3 last season.
The NBA is also making a concerted effort to end its games earlier. The Lakers and Warriors, for instance, will each see their number of 10:30pm eastern time starts nearly cut in half, per Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).
Additionally, many of the NBA’s prime-time doubleheaders on TNT and ESPN will now tip off at 7:00/9:30pm ET or 7:30/10:00pm ET, rather than 8:00/10:30pm ET.
The NBA also confirmed several previously-reported marquee matchups, including its five-game Christmas Day slate and an opening night doubleheader of Pelicans at Raptors and Lakers at Clippers. ESPN has a round-up of several more must-see games on next season’s schedule.
