With the NBA season creeping closer and closer now that it’s August, its almost time for the NBA to release the 2015-16 schedule. Two games were released these past two days.
The first game that was announced was the New Orleans Pelicans taking on the Miami Heat in South Florida.
Per league source, tentative (not yet definite) NBA schedule in circulation has New Orleans playing the Heat on Christmas in Miami at noon.

One of the best players in Anthony Davis will take on the Heat’s monstrous starting five. It would also be the return of Norris Cole to Miami. Although Cole is a restricted free agent, the Pelicans are expected to match any offer for him.

This comes after LeBron James came out publicly to say that the defending NBA champions shouldn’t play on the road. Last season, the Cavs and Warriors split their season series with each team winning at home, but the biggest headline will be that it’s a Finals rematch.
Stay tuned for the official NBA schedule release sometime this month!
