The 2014-15 NBA regular season schedule was released today, which means it’s time for us hoop heads to dive into the schedule for the Los Angeles Lakers (Here is the entire 2014-15 Lakers schedule). What it really means is that it’s time for us to start looking at season ticket packages.
While there will be a ton of interest in the Cleveland Cavaliers schedule, who will kick off the season in Cleveland against the New York Knicks and Carmelo Anthony, there are some other interesting games and quirks we should mention.
First, the 2014-15 NBA season will officially kick off with a Western Conference double header on October 28th. First up, the defending champion San Antonio Spurs will host the Dallas Mavericks and receive their championship rings. Following that game, the Houston Rockets will visit the Lakers in Los Angeles, something we’ll discuss in a little bit.
The NBA is extending the All-Star break to give players a longer rest this season, meaning the playoffs will go a bit deeper into June that we’re usually accustomed to. According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the minimum break between games for teams is eight games. Some teams will have a longer break.
