Who is ready for some basketball? Tuesday night marks the official 2017 NBA Opening Night as Tip-Off Week is underway with a double-header on TNT.
To jump start the new season, NBA fans will get two thrilling matchups that feature plenty of old faces in new places.
In the first of two games on Tuesday night, the Boston Celtics make the trip to Quicken Loans Arena for a clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers. It will mark the official Celtics debut of big name free agent signing Gordon Hayward. Oh, and there’s that Kyrie Irving guy making his regular season debut for Boston after being traded away from the Cavs.
Cleveland may be without star LeBron James for the season opener, but we will have a chance to see Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade manning the backcourt.
In the second game of the double-header, the Golden State Warriors will be raising the banner and celebrating last season’s NBA Championship before kicking off their title defense against the Houston Rockets.
Golden State will be getting their first look at the shiny new backcourt in Houston which features James Harden and offseason trade acquisition Chris Paul.
