The NBA regular season gets underway Tuesday night, and both finalist from last season will be in action. The defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers host the New York Knicks in the first game of TNT’s opening night doubleheader, with Golden State hosting the San Antonio Spurs in the nightcap. Prior to the Cavaliers game the organization will distribute championship rings and unveil the championship banner, with the start time being moved up a half hour with the World Series beginning at nearby Jacobs Field Tuesday night.
Also on Tuesday’s schedule is a matchup of two teams expected to contend for the Northwest Division title, as Portland hosts Utah. The Jazz, who just missed out on the playoff last season, will be without their leading scorer from a season ago as Gordon Hayward continues to heal from a broken and dislocated finger suffered during the preseason.
