The NBA schedule isn’t officially coming out until next week, but leaks of some games in the Brooklyn Nets schedule are already beginning to come together. Here’s a compilation of some of the leaks we have heard so far:
Opening Night (DateÂ TBA) â€“ Nets @Â Cavaliers
November 1 – Nets vs. Heat
December 25 â€“ Nets vs. Bulls
January 16 â€“ Nets vs. Hawks in London
January 20 â€“ Nets @ Knicks
January 26 â€“ Nets @Â Celtics
February 23 – Nets @ Lakers
March 7 â€“ Nets @ Celtics
The opening night game will most likely be on Wednesday, October 30th because Tuesday is reserved for the Miami Heat championship presentation as well as a western conference late game.
The Nets will play their first game against the defending champs. It will also be a reunion for Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce. The Nets were 0-3 vs. the Heat last year and were blown out in every game. They also play Miami twice in the preseason.
There was some speculation that the Christmas game would be Nets vs. Knicks. Instead, the Nets will be hosting the Bulls, the team that beat them in the playoffs last season.
The only Nets vs. Knicks game we know of as of now will be on Martin Luther King day. The two teams also played last year on MLK day where Joe Johnson hit a clutch shot in the final 30 seconds to give the Nets a road win in Manhattan.
The first time KG and Pierce will return to Boston will be on January 26th. Of course, they will also play in Boston once during the preseason.
