Despite positive Coronavirus tests from multiple players, the NBA is continuing their plans to finish the 2019-20 NBA seasons in Orlando.
And, for the first time since those plans were announced, we have an official schedule for the first two nights of action.
Opening tip-off will feature the return of Zion Williamson as he tries to lead the Pelicans to a playoff berth. Of course, the big game will be the following one, where the Clippers and Lakers will battle again in what might be a preview of the Western Conference Finals.
The next night will include six games, mostly from bottom-tier playoff teams trying to fight for their chance to make a long postseason run. The highlight of the day, though is undoubtedly the last game between the Rockets and Mavs -- two teams who could be posed to shock the world.
No matter who you root for next this season, this is a good sign and an awesome thing for basketball fans everywhere. The reality of the return of the season seems louder than ever and it's truly an exciting time.
