ESPN NBA Schedule for 2020 Revealed

The NBA released the schedules for every team on Monday. Included in those releases are the national broadcast dates and times for the major networks and the teams that will be playing on those days.

ESPN has the rights to this year’s Christmas Day games again and will enjoy marquee matchups on both Saturdays and Sundays. They will combine with ABC to broadcast 101 NBA games next season.

ESPN NBA Schedule 2020

ESPN/ABC NBA broadcast schedule for next season was just released. The full schedule is below. Some of the biggest matchups include a double-whammy of homecoming games on Thanksgiving (Kyrie Irving back to Boston, Anthony Davis back to New Orleans) and plenty of Lakers-Clippers games.

ESPN NBA Opening Night

ESPN’s Opening Night will take place on October 23, and feature Celtics/Sixers in Philly’s home opener as well as the Nuggets vs. Trailblazers in Portland. It’ll be a fun season.

ESPN Christmas Schedule

The marquee Christmas game this year is the Clippers against the Lakers. Rockets-Warriors is also an interesting game, though the excitement there is certainly subdued following Kevin Durant’s exit.
