Below is the full TNT NBA schedule for the coming season.  Because TNT contractually has the opening game of the season, they draw the first of five Christmas Day games - Celtics at Knicks.  In fact, it's the Celtics and Lakers (not LeBron and the Heat) that have the most scheduled TNT appearances at 10.  As with the ABC schedule, all the league's top powers are heavily featured throughout the course of the abbreviated season.  Durantula and the Thunder appear six times.  TNT will also have all the All Star festivities from Feb 24th-26th and feature the largest media acquisition of the offseason with The Big Prognosticator now in the fold.
