The NBA is back in action!

NBA: Preseason-Boston Celtics at Charlotte Hornets

The insane NBA off-season has officially come and gone and now it’s time for the games to be played. Basketball is finally back in action! This is an opening night game thread, so let’s chat about the first two games of the season.

Both are being televised on TNT.

Boston vs. Cleveland at 7:00 PM (CT)

Houston vs. Golden State at 9:30 PM (CT)

What are you interested in seeing tonight?

I personally can’t wait to see how the debuts of Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Chris Paul, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose and every other new face on these four teams go. How will Jayson Tatum look? Will Jordan Bell get any minutes after a strong preseason? Can the Rockets send an early message to the Dubs?

Since I’m also a Kevin Love apologist, and my loyalty to him is unmatched, I really hope to see him featured offensively like Cleveland has talked about entering the new season. Seeing my boy Clint Capela catch anywhere from 5 to 800 lobs from CP3 would also make me quite happy. I love the potential there.

What are you thinking about? Chat about everything here at Canis.

(It’s time to ASSEMBLE.)
