NBA Schedule: Times, TV Listings for October 19

Joakim Noah Knicks

Due to a nagging hamstring issue Joakim Noah didn’t make his debut as a member of the New York Knicks until Saturday night, accounting for five points, five rebounds and two steals in a 119-107 loss to the Celtics. The two teams meet again Wednesday night, this time in Boston, and New York has another on-court chemistry issue to deal with as the regular season approaches. Point guard Derrick Rose hasn’t been with the team for more than a week due to his being a defendant in an ongoing civil lawsuit in L.A., with the team using Brandon Jennings as the starter in Rose’s absence. He could be back on the court for this contest, but that remains to be seen. Boston’s played well with new addition Al Horford, and with 16 guaranteed contracts on the roster the bigger question is which player won’t make the cut.

In total there are seven games on Wednesday’s schedule, with ESPN having the Knicks/Celtics and Warriors/Lakers matchups. Below are the times and television listings for all seven games, and all times being Eastern.
