Opening night will feature a tantalizing doubleheader as Zion Williamson’s New Orleans Pelicans face the Utah Jazz on July 30. That will be followed by the Los Angeles Lakers facing the Los Angeles Clippers.

The NBA will utilize three courts in Orlando for the games, with two set aside for national TV games. No more than seven games will be played on any given day.

The NBA certainly knew what it was doing when it set the schedule. Putting Zion Williamson and Lakers-Clippers in an opening night doubleheader is sure to draw huge viewing figures.
