5 Opening Night Games That We Want To See
The Cleveland Cavaliers opening night matchup has yet to be announced, but reports are that the Bulls will play host to the Cavs as Chicago’s season-opening game. With this news coming to light, we compiled a list of the top five opening night matchups that we, as fans of the NBA, want to see in late October.
5. San Antonio Spurs @ Cleveland Cavaliers
After losing in the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers became the instant favorites to be hailed as the next champs. Albeit coming off a heartbreaking and energy sapping series loss, the high regard for the Cavs were just right as the team will be welcoming a number of key players back to their fold. While the Cavaliers further solidify their claim to the East’s throne, LeBron James’ old rivals in the San Antonio Spurs underwent a major upgrade when they lured All Star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge to team up with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Kawhi Leonard. Not only that, extra muscle was added to the Spurs when David West agreed to a cheap contract. As aged as the Spurs are, their matchups with LeBron James will never get old.
