We are now just about two months away from the new NBA season.
It might feel like ages away right now but it’ll be here before you know it and soon you’ll be watching your favorite team thrive or crash yet again.
While much of the upcoming NBA schedule is still a mystery, we do know the teams that will be squaring off against each other on Opening Night 2022.
Sources: NBA's 2022-23 Opening Night, Oct. 18 on TNT:
– 76ers at Celtics
– And as previously reported: Lakers at Warriors
— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) August 16, 2022
The Philadelphia 76ers will face off against the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers will take on the Golden State Warriors on October 18.
That is quite the opening night, featuring the two teams that made it to the last Finals and two teams that are desperate to have a season that is better and stronger than what came before.
An Exciting Tip-Off
The Warriors will be getting their championship rings just moments before they go toe-to-toe with the Lakers.
Any betting person would put their money on the Warriors over the Lakers, but many eyes will be paying close attention to LA as they attempt to rebound from a truly abysmal season.
Meanwhile, the 76ers and Celtics will be a fascinating matchup.
The Celtics are coming off of a fantastic season, one that got them all the way to the Finals.
And the 76ers are doubling down on the roster they had last year, with a few new improvements.
Some inside the team, including James Harden, swear that this will be the season that sees them making it all the way through the playoffs.
It’ll be hard to gather a lot of information about any team based only on what we see during opening night.
But it’ll give NBA fans just a small taste of what’s to come.
