NBA Opening Night on Cable TV

We’ve reached the end of October, which means the National Basketball Association is beginning its regular season. Many games will be broadcast nationally this year on network and cable TV, with broadcast partners TNT and ESPN/ABC showing many of the marquee matchups and NBATV filling in the blanks.

Tonight is Opening Night, with back-to-back games airing on TNT (DIRECTV channel 245). First, at 8pm EDT, the defending Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers will face the rival Chicago Bulls in Chicago. Then, at 10:30pm EDT, the New Orleans Pelicans will visit the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors in the Bay Area.

There is plenty of interest in both of these games. Any game featuring Lebron James is going to get big ratings, and the Bulls have been a thorn in Lebron’s side since his days with the Miami Heat. Derrick Rose will be playing, Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol will be figuring out how to co-exist in the big frontcourt of the Bulls, and the Bulls will be trying out a new offensive focus under rookie Head Coach Fred Hoiberg. The Cavs, on the other hand, return the major pieces from last year, and are still trying to make them all fit together.

When it comes to the second game of the night, the defending champs playing at home and raising their banner give plenty of reason to watch, but don’t underrated the Pelicans, and their burgeoning star Anthony Davis, the most exciting player to hit the league since Kevin Durant (or maybe even longer).

It’s a long season, and in the middle surely it will become a slog, but it’s the first night of pro basketball in several months, so enjoy these two great matchups.
