NBA Schedule: Times, TV Listings for November 8

LeBron James Knicks vs. Cavaliers

Despite Tuesday being Election Day, the NBA still has six games on the schedule including the Hawks visiting the defending champion Cavaliers. The two teams have met in the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, with things not going well for the Hawks on either occasion. Swept in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015, this past spring the Hawks were swept in the second round by LeBron James and company. A win Tuesday night won’t change history for Atlanta, but one would think that Mike Budenholzer’s team would want to make a positive statement in the first meeting between the two teams this season.

Cleveland remains the lone undefeated team in the NBA, with their triumvirate of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love leading the way. Another important figure Tuesday night will be starting center Tristan Thompson, who after two seasons of Al Horford will now face Dwight Howard in the middle. Howard’s looked rejuvenated by the move to his hometown team, and while his offensive skill set may not be as varied as Horford’s he gives the Hawks a post player who commands attention in the paint on both ends of the court.

That’s one of two games being shown on NBA TV Tuesday night, with the nightcap being a matchup of two of the top young players in the NBA as Anthony Davis leads the Pelicans into Sacramento to face DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings. Below are the times and television listings for Tuesday’s NBA schedule, with all times being Eastern.
